Lorraine Motel June 22 Mahlique
Lorraine Motel – Mahlique – June 22
Today we went to the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. This is the motel where Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated in 1968. The motel was changed into a National Civil Rights Museum. It was very interesting and had a lot history about of the Civil Rights era. I really enjoyed this museum.
My favorite part was the bus. If you sat down on the front row a voice recording would come on and you would be asked to go to the back of the bus. I thought this was really cool because you got a sense of what position Rosa Parks was in along with many other African Americans of that time. I can’t imagine what that must have been like. I would be really mad if I had to move because of the color of my skin. Over all it was a really good day and I thought a lot about what life was like back then.
