The National Center for Civil and Human Rights commemorates 1964 as a transformative year for the American civil rights movement. Join us as we look back at the grassroots efforts of Freedom Summer activists in Mississippi, remember the historic signing of the Civil Rights Act effectively ending Jim Crow segregation in the United States, and celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic win as the recipient of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize, firmly placing the movement on the world stage.

We invite you to visit The Center and view our 2024 rotation of the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection, We Who Believe in Freedom: 1964—A Transformative Year in Civil Rights.

A Legacy of Creative Protest: King & Youth Activism demonstrates how a generation of youth activists, inspired by Dr. King’s rally for equality, helped to transform political landscapes from the Civil Rights era to present-day through innovative means of protest. Through their innovation, the youth of the 1960s galvanized and elevated the movement, subsequently inspiring Dr. King to explore new and creative ways of protesting as well, leaving a legacy that spanned the test of time.
