Overview

The Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum captures the Civil Rights Movement in Savannah. See a Timeline of Civil Rights History that begins in 1865. Read the story of the Father of modern Civil Rights movement in Savannah, Reverend Dr. Ralph Mark Gilbert who reorganized the local chapter of the NAACP in the 1940s segregated South. His successor Westley Wallace Law led the Civil Rights Movement, in Savannah, through the turbulent 1960s with nonviolent protests that resulted in the downtown businesses in the city of Savannah being desegregated by 1963. Visitors to the Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum also experience a "church theatre" which symbolizes the church organization and NAACP working in tandem to make the Savannah Civil Right movement a success. In the theatre guests watch a video that is a window into that history from the men and women who were on the front lines of Savannah's Civil Rights Movement.

I recommend for anyone who visits Savannah to go and visit the civil rights museum. We had a fantastic time and learned a lot that I didn't know from the civil rights era. Thank you Me. Cutter!

We first went to the museum on a Friday afternoon less than an hour before closing. One of the staff members suggested we return the next day to have the full experience. She was right. We returned on the Saturday morning at 10am sharp and...More

The information that we learned is invaluable. Mr. Cutter has such a wealth of knowledge about the Civil rights movement in Savannah GA.

This museum is walkable from historic Savannah. It has some great information, photos, and clips. It isn't overly large.

This museum focuses on the Civil Rights movement in Savannah, especially the boycott of downtown stores in 1960-61. The effect of the exhibits is dramatic and emotional. The visit gives a different view of Savannah than that experienced just walking through the famous squares.

While focused mostly on Savanna/Georgia civil rights events, there was enough detailed history and powerful displays that typified the struggle for equality throughout 19th and 20th century America.

Savannah has lots of amazing, living tales of American history. This is no exception. It is a must see if you visit Savannah and have any interest in learning about American history. They did a really good job with video documentaries and historically accurate simulations....More

Visited the museum and we're welcomed by friendly, knowledgeable staff. Shown around and informed by a warm, intelligent gentleman (sorry, senior moment, forgotten your name but we also talked about reggae & Stax music). Informative displays & videos, well laid out. Thank you.
