Martin Luther King Jr.

During the Civil Rights BBYO Leadership Lab, we toured Martin Luther King Jr.'s childhood home and visited various exhibits that documented our country's road to "freedom and justice for all." In this self guided tour, we were able to experience history by visiting various rooms dedicated to Rosa Parks, Ghandi and Martin Luther King Jr. himself.

After exploring the freedom museum, we had an "Asking Big Questions" session with a panel of professionals from the Anti-Defamation League’s World of Difference, The Temple and SOJOURN who answered our questions on racism, human trafficking, LGBTQ rights and immigration in the United States.

This session helped broaden our knowledge and made us more aware of what's going on in our society today and what we can do to stand up for others.
