This February, travel through history without leaving the Bluff City. Join the thousands of Americans visiting the National Civil Rights Museum in Downtown Memphis to explore the richness of black history and learn about the struggle for civil rights. Or visit Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum, an actual stop on the route to freedom, to hear true stories of tremendous courage.
Also, tune into WKNO this month for “Duty of the Hour,” a locally produced documentary that examines the life of Dr. Benjamin L. Hooks, who rose from the streets of segregated Memphis to become a national civil rights icon.
