The Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum chronicles the civil rights struggle of Georgia's oldest African-American community from slavery to the present.  Three floors of historic photographic and interactive exhibits provide a glimpse of what life was like during the civil rights struggle in Savannah and Georgia.  Athough the building that houses this museum is modern in comparison to others in Historic Savannah, it has played an important part in Savannah’s African-American history.  Built in 1914 by Robert Pharrow, an African-American contractor from Atlanta, the building was home to the Wage Earners Savings and Loan Bank, once the largest bank for African-Americans in this county.  The building now houses the history of Savannah's civil rights movement.

The museum is located on 460 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd - only 5 blocks from the Savannah Visitors Information Center.
