A memorial to the victims of racial terror lynchings is attracting new visitors to Montgomery, Alabama. In this episode of the Associated Press Travel podcast “Get Outta Here,” AP Travel editor Beth Harpaz visits the city to see the memorial and a new museum dedicated to the legacy of slavery and segregation. You’ll hear from visitors who drove across the country to be there for the opening, and you’ll hear what Ava DuVernay and others have to say about it. The podcast also explores some of Montgomery’s other incredible civil rights history, including the arrest of Rosa Parks, the Montgomery bus boycott, the Freedom Rides and the parsonage where a young minister named Martin Luther King, Jr., became the leader of a movement, virtually overnight.
