THE POWER OF PLACE
“This extensive museum movingly presents the difficult and violently contested history of civil rights in the U.S. It is very hard to witness, but it is a first step towards the truth that we must recognize if we are ever going to escape the destructive racism that is still tearing our nation apart.”
– Elaine S., Asheville, North Carolina, Museum visitor
What we will become depends on what we choose to take part in; whether or not we will watch our time go by or play a role in shaping it. The National Civil Rights Museum is more than a destination. It is a journey.
Your support helps uphold a safe and powerful space where history continues to be made through the presence of our visitors, the purpose of our free community programing, and most importantly, your participation.
Donate to the National Civil Rights Museum and ensure it remains a platform that provides visitors with the space to grow in knowledge and understanding. The Museum Board is challenging you to make a gift so they can match it dollar for dollar and double the power of your gift.
