Next stop: Greensboro, NC

The Civil Rights group had a long, tiring, and wonderful day. We started off the day bright and early at 6:30am, which is when same-day tickets are available online for the National Museum of African American History and Culture. We were lucky enough to secure enough tickets for our whole group! After visiting the Lincoln Memorial and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, we headed off to the NMAACH. One could easily spend 4 or 5 full days in this powerful museum and still not see everything. Our journey through the museum was emotional and enriching, and was the perfect foundation for the rest of our journey to come. Our Amtrak train out of DC will land us in Greensboro, NC where we will explore the historic Woolworth building made famous by the “Greensboro Four” and the sit-in that sparked a movement.
