Start off in Selma and visit the National Voting Rights Museum. Selma is most known for "Bloody Sunday", a day when protestors attempting to march from Selma to Montgomery were attacked by police with tear gas. Make your way over to Montgomery and visit the Dexter Parsonage Museum. This parsonage was the home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from the years 1954-1960. Lastly, stop and visit the Civil Rights Memorial and Center which is a dedication to the martyrs of the Civil Rights Movement.
