The Birmingham Civil Rights Institute contains permanent exhibitions and photo galleries, offering visitors a self-directed journey through the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s to the human rights struggles of today. BCRI believes that telling the stories and lessons learned from the past is crucial to understanding not only African-American history, but American history in the larger context of world history. Its mission is to promote civil and human rights worldwide through education. The Institute's dome reflects that of the Sixteenth-Street Baptist Church across the avenue.

"To promote civil and human rights world-wide through education."
