The National Civil Rights Museum (NCRM) at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis is an informative and captivating national treasure, and the Massachusetts Bar Association has partnered with the NCRM to bring the entire Massachusetts legal community a virtual tour and discussion.

This extremely well-orchestrated tour will guide you through the evolution of American civil rights from the 1600s, through the abolishment of slavery, through the civil rights movement, to present day. An outstanding panel of attorneys and civil rights leaders will provide their insights and answer your questions.

Join us for this compelling and educational virtual event.
