Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum Review

This history museum has a series of engaging exhibits on segregation, from emancipation through the civil rights movement. The role of black and white Savannahians in ending segregation in their city is well detailed and includes archival photographs and videos and a replica of a lunch counter where blacks were denied service.

    Very informative civil rights museum

    A good and informative civil rights museum that describes in detail Savannah's local and ultimately successful overthrow of Jim Crow practices during the 1950s and 60s via non-violent means (boycotts, lunch counter sit-ins, etc.). Plenty of photographic detail and information, as well as a couple short films. Worth a visit.
