Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park – Atlanta, Georgia – 06/04/2016

The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park consists of several buildings in Atlanta, Georgia that interpret the deeply moving history of this pivotal Civil Rights leader.

You will find Martin Luther King Jr.’s boyhood home; as well as the original Ebenezer Baptist Church, where King was baptized. He and his father, Martin Luther King Sr., both served as pastors at Ebenezer.

Also in the 35 acre Sweet Auburn complex are:

Fire Station No. 6

The National Park Visitor Center

The Behold Monument

The “I Have a Dream” International World Peace Rose Garden

 The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change

And a memorial tribute to Mohandas K. Gandhi

You can also spend time taking in the “International Civil Rights Walk of Fame” which commemorates courageous social justice pioneers.

You’ll need to get there early if you want a shot at touring the interior of the King home.

But, at the very least, watch the video.

It’s powerful.

And tour as many of the exhibits and other buildings as you are able.

They are inspiring.

And, of course, make sure you ask for your Junior Ranger Book!

It’s FUN!
