MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The National Civil Rights Museum paid tribute to the victims of a massacre that happened 150 years ago in Memphis.
There was music, art and lectures about the 1866 massacre.
Afterward, the crowd walked down to G.E. Patterson and Second Street, where a marker was unveiled at Army Park.
After the civil war, tensions grew between blacks and whites, leading to neighborhoods being raided. People were killed and homes were set on fire.
