Statue to be Moved Back to the National Civil Rights Museum


(Memphis, Tenn.) The National Civil Rights Museum is celebrating a milestone in its massive renovation today.

The 13-foot tall bronze sculpture — “Movement to Overcome” — will be reinstalled today in the museum’s lobby.

In December, workers carefully removed the statue so it could be safely kept in storage while construction was underway.

The museum’s renovation project is expected to be complete by 2014.
