Withers Collection Museum & Gallery reviews
Words are not enough. Every child that comes to Memphis should visit here and learn. Wonderful display, poignant, entertaining and transforming all roled up in one place. Still heartbreaking that the same economical and social injustice still abound today and are spurred on from our so called political leaders..
Amazing! You should not miss this gallery. The photography is spectacular and tells the history we should already know.
