$50 for 50 by 50 #47: Lowndes County Interpretive Center

I’m turning 50 this year and instead of whining about it, I’m trying to do something positive by donating $50 to 50 different charities before I’m 50 years old.

Ten years ago on the first Plucky Survivors road trip, Mary and I, along with Plucky Passenger Jessica, stopped at the newly opened Lowndes County Interpretive Center, a museum/teaching facility dedicated to the Selma to Montgomery march. It was a highlight among many highlights of our trip and so this week, as I go on a bunch of road trips through the South, I decided to stop there again. It was just as fantastic as I remember it. You can read all about it in the Southern Fried Road Trip Days 4-5 post.

But I loved this place so much that I felt moved to make it #47 on the 50x50x50 list. You have to give the donation in person in cash – you can’t do it online – but you can learn more about the place on the NPS website
