The historic site commemorates the life, work and legacy of the civil rights leader and one of the great Americans. The center takes up several blocks.

Stop by the excellent visitor center to get oriented with a map and brochure of area sites, and exhibits that elucidate the context – ie the segregation, systematic oppression and racial violence that inspired and fueled King's work. A 1.5-mile landscaped trail leads from here to the Carter Center .
