Last month was Black History Month. It is a time to recognize the accomplishments and contributions that African-Americans have made to our country. Over fifty years ago, a very significant and courageous contribution was made in Birmingham, Alabama. It was made by African-American children! Children who were fed up with the injustices of segregation in the most segregationist city in Alabama. The protest that lasted several days was called “The Children’s March.” On May 2, 1963, over a thousand school children left their classrooms and marched into history.
