Marines toured the Albany Civil Right Institute museum which highlights the Albany movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King Junior in the early 60s.

Colonel Donald Davis is excited to see the progress we've made in our community and how the country is moving forward.

"I think generations though, as generation that had it first hand pass on, that we get to replace it with new memories and new dreams," Davis said. "I think it's really important to do that."

The Civil Rights Institute is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
