Leave a Legacy. Click to Donate to the Capital Campaign to renovate the historic Lorraine Motel exhibits!
This campaign has a single mission. We need your help to ensure that this museum is able to educate the children of today and tomorrow about civil and human rights. Through renovated permanent exhibits and expanded new programs, audiences from around the world will be inspired to continue Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy of peace and equality in their own lives.
If you could see the effect that this exhibit has on our audiences, you would see firsthand why this site is so important. Visitors who marched sixty years ago stand beside grandchildren, each enraptured by the words, sounds and images of events that transformed life for every American. Audiences of every age, race and gender are affected equally. Each of them leaves with a different way of viewing the world they live in today.
The National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel has this effect on visitors today, with 20-year old permanent exhibits established in 1991. We can do so much more today. Your support can help us renovate these exhibits to make them more relevant and impacting to new audiences.
And with your endowment contributions, we can create new programs that convene national scholars to discuss topical issues. We can continue to establish this museum and this site as the focal point for an entirely new generation, one that inspires young visitors to create a better, more equal world to live in. You can help us ensure operations, ongoing maintenance and updating of exhibitions.
