This City In Alabama Has A Dark And Evil History That Will Never Be Forgotten
There have been many pivotal events to occur throughout Alabama’s history, and this of course includes the Civil Rights Movement. The goal of the Civil Rights Movement was for racial segregation and discrimination against African Americans to end. Rosa Parks, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. were just a few of the prominent figures during this time in history. One of the most significant events during the Civil Rights Movement was known as “Bloody Sunday.”
