Education and Interpretation
When it comes to civil rights, it’s important not only to learn about historical milestones but also to interpret them in a way that can be applied to today’s challenges. Through multi-sensory and multi-media innovations, historical artifacts and structures, events, speakers and online resources, the National Civil Rights Museum champions educational programming and offers visitors a full immersion experience.
Forums, guest speakers and school programs keep history fresh in visitors’ minds whether onsite or online.
Students can supplement their National Civil Rights Museum experience both before and after their visits. We also provide online resources and activities designed for children of various ages and grades.
The National Civil Rights Museum is committed to providing educators and parents with online resources for teaching the struggle for freedom and justice to students, along with professional development opportunities.
Our partners provide resources for initiatives benefitting the community at large.
