National Center for Civil and Human Rights – Virtual Tour

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is dedicated to the achievements of both the civil rights movement in the United States and the broader worldwide human rights movement. 

The Center’s exhibitions tell the history of the civil rights movement in the United States, and how the campaign is related to contemporary human rights struggles across the world.

The “Voice to the Voiceless” exhibit tells Dr. King’s story from his youth through to his assassination and its aftermath. Dr. King’s personal papers in the displays include:

  • Letters from Birmingham Jail
  • King’s Sermons

The Center contains interactive galleries with examples of segregation in the United States as embodied in Jim Crow laws and signs designating facilities as “whites only.”

The Global Human Rights Movement exhibits include modern-day issues such as efforts to improve conditions of women, LGBT individuals, and religious rights around the world.
