Tennessee makes for an exciting travel itinerary not just for its choice attractions, world-renowned entertainment and unique vibe, but also for its historical significance. Tennessee, like most Southern states, faced many obstacles in the struggle for equality. Experience the legacy of the people, places and events that defined the Civil Rights Movement in the state by exploring historic sites such as Clark Memorial United Methodist Church in Nashville, the Green McAdoo Cultural Center and Clinton 12 statues in Clinton, and the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis featuring the Lorraine Motel, the site of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination.
