Today is the Grand Opening of EJI’s new Café, Gift Shop and Bookstore at 121 Coosa Street in downtown Montgomery, Alabama. Located next door to the Legacy Museum, the Gift Shop features a Starbucks Café with fresh baked goods from Little Red Cupcake, a bookstore, and space for visitors to reflect on and share their experiences at the museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice.
