    The museum was awesome. We also went to the fire house he used to play at and got a tour by a retired fireman who was one of the first black firemen at that station. That was awesome!

    Just driving by Dr. Martin Luther King's birth house is a humbling experience. I can only picture him being born in the upstairs bedroom. The House is still in tact and that's awesome.
