The National Civil Rights Museum is housed on the site of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tenn., where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is a proud supporter of the museum and of Dr. King’s ideals. When I visit the museum, I am always inspired by the history of the struggle to desegregate America—especially our public education system—and to transform our country.
I am grateful...
