Civil Rights and Alabama History

2013 marked the 50th anniversary of some of Birmingham’s darkest moments: the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church that took the lives of four little girls, fire hoses set loose by its police chief on civil rights activists, and the incarceration of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Yet from these came a pivotal movement that has led to freedom for all, despite skin color or heritage. Birmingham honors the Civil Rights movement and those who pioneered it at its world-class Civil Rights Institute. It is sobering, educational, and incredibly insightful. Check the website for information about walking tours around key landmarks of Birmingham's civil rights struggle.
