Yesterday, The Millennium Gate Museum premiered a special exhibit and book release in honor of Civil Rights icon, Andrew Young’s ninetieth birthday.

The exhibit, as well as the book, “The Many Lives of Andrew Young”, written by Ernie Suggs, tells the inspirationally dramatic story of Ambassador Young as tribute to and chronicle of the life of a man whose service and activism helped mold the face of modern American society.

“When at the close of my Administration in January 1981, I awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Andrew Young and I cited his lifetime of dedication to human rights. Andy is a great man and a national treasure.”

President Jimmy Carter

The book features hundreds of full-color photos that capture the life and times of Andrew Young as he journeyed across the political spectrum. Additionally, the exhibit itself provides viewers an in-person experience of Ambassador Young’s life by displaying personal items, memorabilia, and study material.

Although Power The Vote started its efforts in Georgia, a battle ground state that flipped blue in the 2020 Presidential Election, the team has taken what they’ve learned and is applying it to other states that have experienced voter suppression in their communities.


The Millennium Gate Museum will display Ambassador young’s exhibit until June 11th, 2022 and The Many Lives of Andrew Young is now available for purchase at local retailers and online.
