The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is a cultural center in downtown Atlanta that seeks to connect the American Civil Rights Movement to today’s Global Human Rights Movements. Their purpose is to create a safe space for visitors to explore the fundamental rights of all human beings. The Center's goal is to inspire and empower visitors to join the ongoing dialogue about human rights in their own communities.
The Center has both permanent and temporary exhibitions on different topics relating to civil and human rights. Exhibitions explore the history of the civil rights movement in the US during the 1950s and 1960s. Others focus on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s life and work in the fight for equal rights. Some exhibitions focus more on present-day issues of human rights and how certain groups are depicted in the media. These exhibits aim to help visitors gain a deeper understanding of human rights and how they affect the lives of every person.

Rich Historical Context Tour of Civil Rights Movement
, Feb 2020
This tour involved walking around the Sweet Auburn neighborhood and seeing well known historic locations including Martin Luther King Jr's birth home & Ebenezer Baptist Church, but also included some off the beaten path stops such as Wheat Street Baptist Church & Prince Hall Grand Lodge which provided additional historical context and richness to the tour commentary! This tour delves into the stories of other prominent figures of the Civil War movement and how by working together they were able to achieve change and progress in our country. Emily was very upbeat, engaging, entertaining, well informed, & enthusiastic about sharing Atlanta's history!

I was hugely fascinated by the Centre for Civil and Human Rights. It gave me a perspective that was far bigger than you are taught in school. Yes, it covers the more well-known people such as Martin Luther King Jr and Rosa Parks but it opened my eyes to a whole new world of people who fought the fight for justice or supported the push for change and respect like Viola Liuzzo, Ivan Allen Jr , Claudette Colvin and the former coca cola president Robert Woodruff. It is well worth the visit and you must do the lunch counter experience its humbling and shocking in equal measure . The only downside is that when buying tickets via viator you still have to queue up, so it almost defeats the purpose as you may as well queue to buy your tickets
