Civil Rights Movement memories

With the recent celebration of Martin Luther King Jr Day, we've been remembering a lot of Dr. King's activities to overcome racism and racial inequality. Things were heating up for the tumultuous events in the spring of 1963 in Birmingham. Let's use this time to reflect on what happened first. A powerful way to remember is to visit the parsonage in Montgomery, Alabama where Dr. King served. You can stand around the olf formica table where he anguished and made the decision to lead the Civil Rights Movement.
