It was my very first time visiting Memphis, Tennessee and let me tell yah, I had a great experience in this historical city! I will admit that I didn’t know so much took place in Memphis many years ago but it was so refreshing to catch up on so many things. First stop, was visiting the National Museum of Civil Rights! It was a heartbreaking but very informative experience and I can’t thank African Pride enough for inviting me to see with my own eyes such an great place!
I got to actually see where Martin Luther King took his last breathe, stand on the balcony where the assassination took place and tour the museum, each exhibit got better and better. It was powerful, moving, and I was full of emotions. I remember reading in text books as a young girl growing up about so much that was displayed, it was very eye-opening for sure. Check out a few snaps inside and if you ever are in Memphis, you have to stop by this historical museum, it’s such a great place to take your family and friends.
