official line at The National Civil Rights Museum is that the museum
exists to educate the public of civil rights, not as homage to Dr. King,
but to feature Dr. King as one of many campaigners who fought for Civil
Rights. If this is the case, why choose the Lorraine Motel, why re-create
a laser display depicting Dr. King's death? Why purchase the rooming
house from where the bullet may have been shot? Why exhibit the alleged
truth is that by converting the Lorraine Motel, which even including
demolishing the rooms where the strategy meetings took place, they have
chosen to make this hallowed ground into nothing more than a tourist
attraction at the expense of the poor and disadvantaged.
entire morals of the Museum can be questioned. How can they actively
encourage "black tie" glitzy balls and functions for the advantaged,
while the poor and displaced are shoved to one side on the same block.
