The National Voting Rights Museum serves as a living reminder that we stand on the shoulders of giants. Therefore, our mission is to be a Museum and Institute that chronicles and preserves the historic journey for the right to vote that began when the “Founding Fathers” first planted the seeds of democracy in 1776. As such, the struggle for justice and democracy is a never-ending one. Each generation will have its barriers to overcome and its stories to share. The Museum is committed to collecting and sharing these stories, struggles, and victories for generations to come.
Located in the Historic District of Selma, Alabama at the foot of the famous Edmund Pettus Bridge, the scene of “Bloody Sunday,” the National Voting Rights Museum & Institute is the cornerstone of the contemporary struggle for voting rights and human dignity.
