Pit stop #3: Montgomery

17 May

We decided to spend the weekend in Montgomery, AL exploring the center of so much historic Civil Rights action. We visited the Civil Rights Memorial Center, saw the church where Marin Luther King Jr. preached for years, toured the Rosa Parks Museum, and walked to her famous bus stop.

These spots saddened us with how much evil exists, and impressed us with the strength of character and courage shown by so many as they stood up and said enough. Most beautiful and poignant was Maya Lin’s water memorial.
