Finally, in today's Dallas Morning News (Nov. 9, 2019), there was an article about U.S. civil rights landmarks. If you are wondering about somewhere to go over Spring Break or next summer, here are a few places to check out: National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama (EJI.org); Alexandria, Virginia has many museums but the Donald W. Reynolds museum and Education Center (visitalexandriava.com) was featured in this article; Martin Lother King Jr. Memorial is in Washington, D.C. (nps.gov/mlkm/panyourvisit); Natches, Miss. for another view of the ever unwinding story of slavery and African American history (visitnatchez.org); The National Civil Rights Museum, Mephis, Tenn. (civilrightsmuseum.org). A personal note about Tennessee, they have many battle sites and museums to check out.
Have a good week!
