International Museum Day: Celebrate with Us
by Kelli Edwards, Program Manager
Join the Center for Civil and Human Rights on May 18th as we celebrate International Museum Day. Today, we celebrate museums and cultural preservation institutions alike for raising awareness about our world’s most important issues, and how museums impact the cultural landscape of society.
Nestled in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia, the Center for Civil and Human Rights (CCHR) captures essential moments in our past and connects them to global human rights issues today. Since opening our doors in 2014, CCHR has concentrated efforts to educate the public on issues involving social justice, civil rights and humanity. Our mission aims to inspire the next generation of leaders to take charge in their communities. With the creation of innovative educational and public programs, we aim to ignite a passion for justice within all who pass through our doors. Through engaging, thought provoking exhibitory to heartwarming success stories, we are proud to highlight the truth of human experiences.
Civil Rights literary genius James Baldwin once stated, “If you know from whence you came, there are absolutely no limitations to where you can go”. What better way to do just that than by walking through our self-guided gallery experience “Rolls Down Like Water”. Observe how far we have come as a nation. We empower you to take what you have learned and seek out opportunities for growth in your own community.
