“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world.

It’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead

The goal of the Social Justice Experience is to inspire hope, vision, and action by reflecting on the history of slavery, the struggle for civil rights, the example of civil rights pioneers and the need for next generation change-makers committed to solve problems and serve people.

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights is a museum and cultural institution that connects the U.S. Civil Rights Movement to human rights challenges today.

Situated on a site where enslaved Black people were forced to labor in bondage, the Legacy Museum offers an immersive experience with cutting-edge technology, world-class art, and critically important scholarship about American history.

The National Memorial for Peace and Justice is the nation’s first memorial dedicated to the legacy of enslaved Black people, people terrorized by lynching, African Americans humiliated by racial segregation and Jim Crow, and people of color burdened with contemporary presumptions of guilt and police violence.

Established in 1968 by Mrs. Coretta Scott King, The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change (“The King Center”) has been a global destination, resource center and community institution for over a quarter century.
