Downtown Museums and Galleries
The Center for Civil and Human Rights
100 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd., Downtown
Alongside some of the city’s biggest attractions (the World of Coca-Cola museum, the Georgia Aquarium, and the Inside CNN tour), comes one of the city’s newest: The $68 million, 42,000-square-foot Center for Civil and Human Rights, which tells the story of the Civil Rights Moment in Dr. King’s hometown and opened its doors in 2014. Here, a rotating selection of King’s personal artifacts and manuscripts are on display on loan from the Morehouse College. Currently on view: #1960, a collection of photographs from fine art photographer Sheila Pree Bright, who captures imagery across Atlanta, Baltimore, Ferguson and DC, bringing attention to policing in the African American community.
