Through the Eyes of a Child: In Commemoration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday

Join the Freedom Rides Museum to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Dr. Valda Harris Montgomery grew up with a front-row seat to the civil rights movement. Dr. Harris Montgomery, author of “Just a Neighbor,” a memoir about growing up during the civil rights movement and two doors down from the Martin Luther King family, will give a special presentation and sign copies of her book. She was just 13 years old when her parents sheltered the battered and bruised Freedom Riders in their home here in Montgomery. 

Join the Freedom Rides Museum to honor the sacrifices of our country's Civil Rights Movement veterans and how we can carry on their legacy today.
