Very small exhibit - the memorial is interesting. Worth stopping - doesn't take a long time to visit.

We spent quite a while here going through the timeline on the memorial. However, the film that was shown at the Civil Rights Memorial Center put the timeline into perspective. So, best to visit both one right after the other if possible.

Such a powerful monument. Created by the same artist who rendered the Vietnam Memorial in D.C. this depicts the timeline of the Civil Rights Movement and those who lost their lives. Truly powerful!
