Immanuel Lutheran School 6th grade students toured the National Civil Rights Museum on March 29th, which includes the Lorraine Motel and the Legacy Building. The National Civil Rights Museum is a renowned educational and cultural institution that chronicles the American Civil Rights Movement. The Museum includes the Montgomery Bus, the Sit-in Counter, the Freedom Rides Bus, and the Memphis Sanitation Truck, along with archival films, interactive exhibits, and many informative displays. The Museum honors the spirit of leaders and ordinary people who made courageous choices: to stand by their convictions, to represent the concerns of others, and to mobilize individuals into mass movements for change.
