Civil Rights Memorial Center
Civil Rights Memorial Center information
Lonely Planet review
With its circular design crafted by Maya Lin, this haunting memor-ial focuses on 40 martyrs of the Civil Rights movement, all murdered for countless senseless reasons, many of which have never been solved. MLK Jr was the most famous, but there were many 'faceless' deaths along the way, white and African American alike, that here provide some of the most somber moments in American history.
