Albany museum remembers MLK


The director of the Albany Civil Rights Institute says the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Junior's assassination is good time to visit the local museum to learn about King's fight for justice here and around the world.

"We are a long way from where we were, and we are also a long way from where we ought be, but I think that we have to be thankful that he came forth with his vision for us," said ACRI Executive Director Frank Wilson.

King was shot on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968.

The Albany Civil Rights Institute Museum tells the story of the Albany Movement and King's part in it. It's open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
