Few states played a larger role in the modern Civil Rights Movement than Alabama. From the dramatic events in its capital city Montgomery in the 1950s through demonstrations in Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, and Selma in the 1960s, the efforts of Alabama activists helped move a nation and its leaders toward greater equality. In this illustrated presentation, writer and historian Scotty E. Kirkland will narrate many of the important Alabama events of the post-World War II movement for social justice and human rights. He will discuss the lives and work of a number of lesser-known foot soldiers of the movement and show how their efforts, alongside well-known historical figures, helped bring about nationwide changes in civil and voting rights.
