The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute was designed as a living institution, ensuring that Birmingham's contribution to the civil rights movement translates to present generations. At BCRI, guests learn about the courageous men and women who dared confront centuries of bigotry to transform the American landscape. The dream of former Birmingham mayor David Vann, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute opened to the public in November of 1992. Ever since, the BCRI has done everything in its powers to do justice to the heroes portrayed within the institute's halls.
Along with being one of three Smithsonian Institute Affiliates in Alabama, BCRI became accredited by the American Association of Museums in 2005, an honor that few museums are able to claim. By showing one of the most turbulent chapters in American history, the BCRI inspires guests by telling the moving stories of courageous everday Americans who dared stand up to injustice and how their struggles shaped the present and the future.
