Erasicism

 

 

 

 

 

Erasism; to nullify the effect or force of prejudice or discrimination.

This morning we walked through the National Civil Rights Museum. Now being from DC I am a connessour of museums, and generally any museum I have to pay for already starts on the wong note. So after spending my 13 dollars to gain admittance I was anxious to see if it would measure up.

As you can see from the pictures there was a lot more too it than a timeline of civil rights. Yes i know your not supposed to take pictures, but come on it was Rosa Parks bus end MLK’s jail cell. despite the lack of allowed photography i found it was a quiet and powerful museum.

I walking through you have to keep composed to keep from crying. Despite the serious subject you also have to keep from laughing. Those Southern ministers knew how to crack a joke, and the freedom school teachers encouraged lots of levity in student classrooms.

All in all it was a good museum and if you are in Memphis it is a must visit. Now for some bbq, we are sitting in The PIG on Beal. Mostly because its the only one on the street with pig in the name and ever since The Snazzy Pig in Roswell i have found that any place with pig in the name has good bbq.
