Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is a large interpretive museum and research center in Birmingham, Alabama that depicts the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s.
This historic museum traces the journey of the civil rights advocates of the 1950s and 60s, who changed the course of American history. The struggle for equality for Black Americans is chronicled here, from the Jim Crow laws in the 1800s to the freedom rides, sit-ins and demonstrations of the 1960s.
An important snapshot of Birmingham’s complicated history- a beautiful museum telling the story of the Civil Rights struggle in Birmingham and the country as a whole.
This is a powerful memorial to the Civil Rights struggle in the American South as well as the worldwide struggle for human rights today. If you have time, also visit the church and Kelly Ingram Park
