General Information

A city synonymous with the Civil Rights struggle in America, Birmingham, Alabama is a modern exemplar of the New South. A major hub of business and finance, the city was built in the image of Birmingham, England after the U.S. Civil War. Known for decades as "The Pittsburgh of the South", Birmingham became the focal point of the Civil Rights Movement in 1963 when Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a non-violent protest to end segregation in the city. Protestors were met with police brutality, tear gas, dogs and fire hoses, now indelible images which were then broadcast around the world to a shaken international community. Foreign pressure, King's arrest and dramatic "Letter from Birmingham Jail" were subsequently instrumental in the watershed Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Today, Birmingham has overcome the shameful bane of racism and the landmarks of the Civil Rights Movement, from the 16th Street Baptist Church to Kelly Ingram Park, have become vital tourist attractions. The city offers much more than Civil Rights history lessons of course, but no visit to Birmingham is complete without them.
