Room 306

Room 306.  Civil Rights Museum today. We stood at the window looking down where Martin Luther King was shot April 4th, 1968. The whole museum was a deep experience in American history that left the three of us—Tobi, Debbie Moderow and me with layers to think about.  I can’t recommend the museum enough.  You will feel America deeply, hear MLK’s voice and see the bed where he slept, the balcony, the window, the bathtub, the jail cell.

Oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever.” MLK

  1. I too have been to this museum. It’s incredibly well curated and very moving. All Americans should visit it at some point, even though Memphis is in “flyover” land. A lot happened in that city in the 1960s and it’s a fascinating place. The tears were streaming down my face as I walked out of the museum.
