can we afford for this part of our history to repeat itself? May 01, 2008
Most people have heard of Martin Luther King Jr. but, have you ever heard of Emmett Till? His murder is what started the civil rights movement in 1955. The story of his gruesome murder inspired Rosa Parks to not give her seat up on that bus in Montgomery. This story and other equally disturbing stories are told thru a mini film at the Civil Rights Memorial Museum. I personally believe that it's inmportant to know your history both the events that were good as well as the bad! After all, they all helped shape the future of our country!

Some times the bad events can be disturbing but, if we ignore them they can happen again! If ever in Montgomery stop by this place what you can learn there can be insightful as well as inspiring. The place is small so, we were in and out within 45 minutes but, what you learn there will be unforgettable!
