The Jackson Home and Museum is a historic site located in Selma, Alabama that honors the legacy of civil rights leader, Dr. Sullivan Jackson. The house, which was built in 1890, served as the family home for Dr. Jackson and his wife Richie Jean Jackson during the height of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s.
The museum is dedicated to preserving the history of the Civil Rights Movement in Selma and the pivotal role that Dr. Jackson played in the struggle for racial justice. The exhibits include photographs, artifacts, and interactive displays that provide visitors with a deeper understanding of the social, political, and cultural context of the time.
In addition to the museum, the Jackson Home serves as a community center, hosting events and programs that promote education, dialogue, and social justice. The site is a testament to the resilience and perseverance of the human spirit in the face of adversity, and a reminder of the ongoing struggle for equality and justice in America.
This structure houses memorabilia and artifacts from the Civil Rights Movement in Selma. Leaders such as Dr. Ralph Bunche, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Ambassador Andrew Young, and many others stayed in this home during a critical time in our nation’s history. Admission charged.
