After visiting the Rosa Parks Museum, I went to the Dexter Avenue Church where Dr. King was pastor during the 1950's and then went to the Parsonage - his home from 1954-1960. On Saturday, the museum is only open from 9AM-2PM and I arrived at 1:45PM. the ladies in the gift shop agreed to give me a tour as long as I helped turn off the lights and lock up (!). I was only too happy to oblige. The killer part of the tour was in the last room of the house: the kitchen - where they played a CD of Dr. King telling a congregation in Chicago about an epiphany he had very early on in the movement. I won't spoil it - - - but there is a box of Kleenex very wisely placed on the kitchen table. It seems as if I wasn't the only one to "lose it" during this part of the tour. The docent who showed me the house was very knowledgeable about which items in the house were and were not there when the King family lived there. G R E A T tour as part of a tour of historic sites in Montgomery.
