The National Center for Civil and Human Rights Provides Free Admission Through October with Support from Porsche Cars North America, Inc.

Tickets will be limited due to pandemic safety precautions. All exhibitions will be open.

ATLANTA, GA (Oct. 5, 2020) – The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is open with free admission throughout October, an initiative made possible by support from Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA).

PCNA has called Atlanta home for its North American headquarters since 1998 and supports organizations that benefit children and families, education, and civil rights in the local community. The Center has partnered with PCNA since 2014.

“Now more than ever, our exhibitions create powerful moments for visitors to reflect and understand how they can tap their own power to change the world,” said Jill Savitt, The Center’s president and CEO. “We are extremely grateful that Porsche Cars North America is underwriting free admission so more people can immerse themselves in the inspirational stories we tell about rights, dignity and justice.”

Guests will have the opportunity to experience The Center’s permanent exhibitions, such as Rolls Down Like Water, where visitors will be immersed in sights, sounds, and interactive displays depicting the courage of groups and individuals working for equality for all during the American Civil Rights Movement; and Spark of Conviction, which enables visitors to make connections to the world of human rights.

In addition to The Center’s permanent exhibits, temporary exhibitions include Experience the Forgotten, a powerful outdoor exhibition dedicated to rehumanizing those that are homeless, and The Morehouse College Martin King, Jr. Collection, where visitors can view the personal papers and items of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Center has implemented new health and safety procedures to ensure visitors and staff remain safe amidst COVID-19, including personal protective equipment (PPE), temperature scanners, and automated admission kiosks. Visitors are also required to wear a mask and social distancing is enforced.

Tickets must be reserved in advance online at civilandhumanrights.org. Free admission is based on a first come, first serve basis and tickets are subject to availability. The Center is open Thursday, Friday, and Sunday from 12 p.m.-5 p.m. (last entry at 4 p.m.), and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (last entry at 4 p.m.).
