Legacy Museum & National Memorial for Peace & Justice Opens

| May 5, 2018

This week’s eye opener for me was this story from the US: www.eji.org

From across the country and around the world, thousands of people came to Montgomery, Alabama, to celebrate the opening of the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice.

The museum and memorial opened on Thursday and already have hosted thousands of visitors, who emerged determined to bring friends, neighbors, and family members to Montgomery to share the unique and deeply moving experience.

All of the opening week events sold out.

On its website: museumandmemorial.eji.org

“Located on the site of a former warehouse where black people were enslaved in Montgomery, Alabama, this narrative museum uses interactive media, sculpture, videography and exhibits to immerse visitors in the sights and sounds of the domestic slave trade, racial terrorism, the Jim Crow South, and the world’s largest prison system. Compelling visuals and data-rich exhibits provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity to investigate America’s history of racial injustice and its legacy — to draw dynamic connections across generations of Americans impacted by the tragic history of racial inequality.”
