Honoring the Memory of Dr. John Marshall Kilimanjaro, Sr.

The International Civil Rights Center & Museum deeply feels the loss of civil rights activist and cultural pioneer Dr. John Marshall Kilimanjaro, Sr. As a longtime resident of the City of Greensboro, an influential faculty member at N.C.

“Due to increased foot traffic and school groups present in the mornings of March and April, we invite guests to call ahead and confirm availability for walk-ins. In many cases, walk-in tours will have guaranteed availability beginning at 2:00 pm Monday through Friday during this time. We appreciate your understanding and patience, and look forward to seeing you.”

Every individual who works with this institution makes a pledge; that we are to uphold the legacy of the A&T Four, to chronicle the civil rights movement's historical and contemporary effects, and to bring down barriers of all kind that divide and weaken us as human beings. It is that drive that calls us to strengthen ourselves, our community, and our world.
