Center for Civil and Human Rights
Atlanta, GA 30313
The Center for Civil and Human Rights in downtown Atlanta is an engaging cultural attraction that connects the American civil rights movement to today's global human rights movements. It is our vision to harness Atlanta's legacy of civil rights to strengthen the worldwide movement for human rights.
The Center for Civil and Human Rights houses four exhibitions: "Rolls Down Like Water: The American Civil Rights Movement," "Spark of Conviction: The Global Human Rights Movement," "Voice to the Voiceless: The Morehouse College Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection," and selections from the Benny Andrews' "John Lewis Series."
Visitors will be immersed in experiential exhibits through powerful and authentic stories, historic documents, compelling artifacts, and interactive activities.
Atlanta's newest landmark is also the perfect space for your event, gathering, reception, reunion or meeting.
