Albany -- One of the state's top elected officials lent his support to the Albany Civil Rights Movement Museum Tuesday afternoon.

Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker toured the museum on Whitney Avenue. The state's first black Attorney General acknowledges he is a symbol of how successful the civil right's movement has been in Georgia.

Baker said " It gives us an opportunity to take a picture , a snapshot of where we have been as a country, and where we are now a days. And we are making progress in all of those areas."

 The Museum is having an awareness and membership drive to preserve their history of the Civil Rights Movement in South Georgia.
