Justice Conference to Kick Off Museum and Memorial Opening in April


A two-day conference on April 26 and 27 with national leaders discussing a range of issues concerning justice in America will accompany the opening of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and the new Legacy Museum: From Enslavement to Mass Incarceration in Montgomery. EJI’s new museum and memorial are expected to attract thousands of visitors when doors open. Click here for tickets for admission to the museum and memorial.

Conference presentations with national leaders will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 26, and continue throughout the day, and will take place on Friday, April 27, from 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.

An opening ceremony for the new museum and memorial has been scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on April 26 at the Montgomery Convention Center.

On Friday night, EJI will host a concert with nationally recognized performers at the Montgomery Riverwalk Amphitheater at 7:00 p.m. Panelists, presenters, and performers will be announced later this month when tickets will also go on sale.

Montgomery will be the site of exciting events when the new museum and memorial open on April 26, and EJI’s newest video shows why Montgomery is an important place in America for confronting our history of racial injustice.  We hope you will plan to join us in Montgomery to celebrate the opening of the museum and memorial.
