ATLANTA (AP) - A new museum highlighting historic and modern struggles for equality has opened to the public.

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights opened Monday in downtown Atlanta. The museum will showcase the civil rights movement and modern human rights struggles separately, but also aims to show how they’re related.

The museum is also expected to feature both permanent and rotating exhibits.

The opening ceremony featured several speakers, including Democratic Georgia congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and more.
