The Center for Civil and Human Rights, located in downtown Atlanta, is a cultural attraction that allows visitors to learn and reflect on the connection between The American Civil Rights Movement and today’s Human Rights Movements. The center, established in 2007, was the vision of Evelyn Lowery and Ambassador Andrew Young. Last year, the 42,000 square-foot museum opened in Penberton Place on land donated by Coca-Cola.

This beautiful institution includes photos, chilling personal accounts, and footage from the Civil Rights Movement. There is also a special area in the Center containing manuscripts and artifacts of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The Center for Civil and Human Rights should definitely be on your list of places to visit.
