Renovations underway on long-vacant hotel in Birmingham Civil Rights NMon

A long-vacant motel in Birmingham, Alabama that once housed the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is being renovated as a tourist site under a 2017 plan pushed by former President Barack Obama.

The 65-year-old A.G. Gaston Motel, featured in The Negro Motorist Green Book for Black travelers, is being revitalized as part of the new Birmingham Civil Rights National Monument, The Associated Press is reporting.
