ATLANTA (AP) — A new museum highlighting historic and modern struggles for equality has opened to the public in downtown Atlanta.

The National Center for Civil and Human Rights opened Monday. It is showcasing the civil rights movement and modern human rights struggles separately, but also aims to show how they're related.

The museum features both permanent and rotating exhibits.

The opening featured several speakers, including Democratic Georgia congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis.
