May, 1963, Martin Luther King speaks in Birmingham, Alabama inspiring African Americans to organize to peacefully protest the Jim Crow laws designed to deny them their rights a citizens. But the price of demonstrating would cost them their ability to support their families. Their children volunteered to demonstrate in their place. The courage demonstrated by these young people is electrifying. It’s a must read story.
