"Much More Than We Expected"

Small museum dedicated to telling the story of the struggle for African Americans claiming their right to vote.  Specifically focuses on Bloody Sunday, when Martin Luther King Jr and his followers were ambushed during a peaceful march from Selma to the State Capitol in Montegomery, Alabma.

Even though our kids weren't familiar with Bloody Sunday and were too young to know of the Civil Rights movement, they were enthralled with the photographs and news reels from that time.  It raised questions from them that we would never have covered in normal conversations and made us, as parents, realize how different our world has become and how powerful history taught from primary sources can be.
