A Better Mid-South: National Civil Rights Museum

A Better Mid-South: National Civil Rights Museum

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

This week we remember the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I can't think of a better time to visit the National Civil Rights Museum in downtown Memphis.

The museum underwent a massive renovation and reopened last year.

I had the chance to visit the museum just after its grand opening and I can tell you it is an emotional journey to spend time in the museum and relive so many poignant moments from the Civil Rights movement and beyond.

This is the perfect opportunity to take your children or your family members who have not had the chance to visit the museum.

You will learn so much, and seeing the work done to the museum will make you proud to be a Memphian and a Mid-Southerner.

The National Civil Rights Museum makes this A Better Mid-South.
