U.S Civil Rights Trail debuts


From a small courtroom in Sumner, Mississippi, where the Emmett Till murder trial was held, to the United States Supreme Court building, the location of the decision in Brown v. Board of Education, the new U.S. Civil Rights Trail covers more than 100 landmarks that played a role in the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s.

The Trail includes sites in 14 states and D.C. where sit-ins were staged, protests were launched, speeches were given, and murders were committed during the battle for racial equality. View maps of the sites and videos of the trail.
