Unique spaces to learn about the past and consider the future.
The Center will draw a broad audience of visitors seeking to learn about
the Civil Rights Movement and its significance for the progress of
human rights across the globe. The individual galleries will engage
visitors through a combination of powerful imagery, compelling
artifacts, and poignant story-telling, but a core group of goals will be
woven through every exhibit space.
Center's exhibits will seek to create a dialogue between generations.
Those who lived through the Civil Rights Movement will be reminded of
what they experienced, what has changed, and what has not.
Telling Forgotten Stories
One of the Center's foremost goals will be to relate the experiences and stories of the unsung heroes and forgotten victims.
The Center will provide ongoing opportunities for visitors to begin developing ties with a broader community.
NCCHR is committed to enabling visitors to embrace contemporary issues,
encouraging them to take a stand, speak on behalf of others and engage
in direct action.
