Atlanta is the birthplace of one of the most important and most famous freedom fighters in the world: Martin Luther King.

The house where he was born, the church where he preached and his final resting place have all been transformed into museums – a tribute to this passionate activist.
All these sites that are dedicated to Martin Luther King are now known as the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site. This also includes an educational visitors’ centre, a rose garden, the Behold Monument and The King Center. You will learn everything about his life and the important role he played in the fight for equality between black and white.
