Travel Guide

This city on the Alabama River was a key location in the American civil rights movement during the mid-20th century. Come here to learn about Southern history and culture.

The capital of Alabama, Montgomery was an important setting in the American civil rights movement. Several key historic protests and boycotts took place here in the struggle for equality during the mid-20th century. Museums, libraries and memorials relating to the movement are scattered around the area.

Visit the Rosa Parks Library and Museum to learn about key events in the civil rights movement. Read about the pivotal moment when the African-American Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white person in 1955. Study exhibits on the ensuing Montgomery Bus Boycott.

Add to your experience with a trip to the Dexter Parsonage Museum, visiting the house where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived for six years. He is considered the most significant leader of the civil rights movement. Watch an informative video and tour the home to learn about Dr. King’s peaceful contributions to the battle for racial equality.

The Civil Rights Memorial Center represents the general tone of the modern city by paying tribute to the drive for equal rights and reminding visitors of the suffering of countless civil rights activists and bystanders.
