  • It was a disappointing display of victimization in the form of pictures and art. There was not one thing uplifting or feelings of a hopeful future. MLK Jr would not find this display of hopelessness meaningful in the quest for equality and to build a society based upon content of each person's character It was however in one of the few clean places in Montgomery which in general seems to be a filthy and poverty stricken city. The pride in the Capitol and government area is not reflected outside that venue which is a shame for this once great and historic city.
  • I enjoyed every minute spent here. This was a very emotional and eye opening experience. I loved being able to add my name to the wall. If you are in town definitely visit.
