  • The Center for Civil and Human Rights is A TREMENDOUS ACHIEVEMENT, unlike anything this city has ever seen . . . for the rest of my days it will be the first place I take visitors to my city . . . I [FEEL] LIKE THE HEART OF ATLANTA HAS FINALLY FOUND A HOME.

    Chuck Reece Editor-in-Chief of The Bitter Southener
  • The Center's exhibits tell stories in ways that promote empathy and understanding. This fledgling cultural institution has already SUCCEEDED IN EXPANDING ATLANTA'S ETHICAL FOOTPRINT.

  • This stunning museum is a CAN'T MISS Atlanta attraction. My family had just under an hour to experience the museum before it closed but it was AMONG THE MOST POWERFUL HOURS OF MY LIFE.

  • MY 15 YEAR OLD SON was dragged into this tour by his debate coach. 6 hours later, he returned with a message – "Mom, we have got to go back this weekend!" He and his buddies loved it...a big accomplishment for any museum when it comes to teenage boys.
