  • Great place to learn the history of the civil rights movement in Birmingham. Monument statues all over, and at least 3 guided paths you can walk around downtown to follow the different marches that took place during the movements. We followed the Palm Sunday March, which MLKJ had also participated in when he got arrested and then sent the famous letter from Birmingham jail. That took us to city hall and Linn Park, with at least 15 signs guiding the way and sharing inspirational thoughts, photos, and history, as well as ideas for discussion and education for young and old.
  • Site on Civil Rights Trail. Here hundreds of young people gathered to boycott and sit in local businesses to protest segregation. Near historic church that was bombed, and four little girls were killed.
