Today we took a drive to Birmingham to visit the Civil Rights Institute, an amazing collection of information about the civil rights movement.The museum’s presentations are very dynamic and include sound, video, installation, text and photos. The museum is located in what is called the Civil Right’s District, a six-block area that served as the epi-center of the movement.

After touring the Institute, we enjoyed a delicious and hearty meal of greens, ribs, cornbread and cat-fish.

On our way home we took a break from the interstate to drive through some small towns. We stopped off to explore Eutaw (pronounced ‘utah’) just at twilight: its architecture was ethereal.

Overall it felt strange to move through the landscape at an auto’s pace.
