Memphis

On the third day of our trip, we left Nashville in the morning and headed to Memphis. Here’s a link to an essay I wrote about my experience in Memphis on this trip, with a photo, called Memphis has Two Kings.

We stopped on Beale Street for lunch.

Next, we visited The National Civil Rights Museum. The National Civil Rights Museum is located at the Lorraine Motel, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated as he was supporting the Memphis Sanitation Worker’s strike and the direct action campaign for economic justice. The Museum chronicles key episodes of the Movement to inspire participation in civil and human rights efforts globally, through its collections, exhibitions, and educational programs.

Here’s a link to all of my entries and posts about our time spent exploring civil rights in Memphis.
