Over the legislative break in October, I drove to Memphis, Tennessee. During my trip, I had the privilege of visiting the National Museum of Civil Rights. It was a powerful experience. The museum’s tour concluded at the Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King spent his final hours.
On the senate floor today, I referenced this as I spoke in support of Senate Resolution 53, which encourages all Americans to pay tribute to the life and great work of Martin Luther King, Jr. through community service on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
If you have not yet visited the National Museum of Civil Rights, I highly encourage you to do so. Learn more here: https://www.civilrightsmuseum.org/
