Museums that hold the history of our collective past are having a renewed moment right now.
As the country and the world grapples with a rise in white supremacy, xenophobia, racist rhetoric, and mass killing, people are flocking to museums for guidance and reassurance.
The National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta is one such place.
New CEO Jill Savitt is the woman tasked with leading the center into the future.
GPB’s Leah Fleming traveled to the center to take a tour and sit down with Savitt to talk about the history of Atlanta and how the past can help guide people through turbulent times.
