The Center for Civil and Human Rights - Atlanta

Named the “Best Museum in Atlanta” by USA Today’s 10Best.com, the Center for Civil and Human Rights is Atlanta’s newest, must-see cultural destination. Award-winning architecture and exhibitions connect the American Civil Rights Movement to the Global Human Rights Movements through touch-screen technology, powerful videos, music, original recordings and stories of courage. Sit at an interactive lunch counter and experience what heroic protestors braved; stand face-to-face with Human Rights champions; and witness items that changed history: Dr. King’s personal papers. A powerful and uplifting journey providing an understanding of the role each person can play in helping to protect the rights of all people..

Wolfe, a respected Broadway director and writer whose résumé includes Tony Award–winning sensations Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk and Angels in America.
