MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Ahead of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the WWE Superstars made a $10,000 donation to the National Civil Rights Museum.

The wrestlers toured the museum Monday with the Memphis-area Boys and Girls Club.

The WWE Superstars say it’s important for children to learn about the American civil rights movement and how the era continues to shape the world.

“It wasn’t that long ago that all this stuff happened,” said Xavier Woods. “And knowing that I have family who did march, who did go through those things, and they saw stuff that we will never see. They went through that for us already. They went through that stuff so we can be here today to do what we’re able to do, because of them.”

WWE Monday Night Raw is live at FedExForum Monday night.
