Learn How the World Changed on the U.S. Civil Rights Trail

Visiting attractions on the U.S. Civil Rights Trail helps us to see how far we’ve come, but also how much further we have to go.

And the importance of us not dragging our feet or stopping the peaceful movement.

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis. We are planning more stops along the US Civil Rights Trail to learn, be inspired, and to remember to stand up for equality for everyone.

It's so important to give these experiences to our children when we travel.

I share more in today's post. Have you experienced any of the US Civil Rights Trail?
