I took my 8 year old, bi-racial granddaughter to the dedication last fall and as she was leaving I asked her if she liked it. She said to me, "Yes. Grandma, it almost made me cry."
Every American, especially our children, should see this in person. We must never forget the people whose lives contributed to making ours the country of liberty and justice for all.
The memorial was designed by Architect Maya Lin who also designed the Vietnam memorial in DC.
Wonderfully executed exhibit. Montgomery is a beautiful town, rich with history but with still a raw edge. How many other places can you see the first white house of the confederacy and the civil rights memorial on the same street?
The memorial itself is outside the small museum. It cost 4 or 5 dollars to go in, where there is a film, and walls covered in those killed durring the civil rights movement. There were monitors in the center of the main room on swival polls that virtuall "saw through the walls". When pointed in the direction of certain historic landmarks, they pop up into view. Also, which I thought was neet was the room with a prjector that streamed names of those who had made a commitment to be against hate crimes. I typed in my name and was able to add it, watching my name as it streamed down the wall of thousands others to end all discrimination.
I had the opportunity to visit Montgomery,AL during the MLK weekend and Inauguration and Robert E Lee's birthday. It put a different view on all the events when I realized that Dr. King's church- Dexter Avenue was within waking distance of the State Capitol. I walked around the corner to the museum and reflected at the fountatin in front. The information inside about senseless attacks showed that they didnt stop in the 50's or 60's. These deliberate acts of meaness were documented with recent dates. I recommend it for the value-$2.00. Best deal in town
