Book Overview

Now with a new afterword, the Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatic account of the civil rights era s climactic battle in Birmingham as the movement, led by Martin Luther King, Jr., brought down the institutions of segregation.

The Year of Birmingham, 1963, was a cataclysmic turning point in America s long civil rights struggle. Child demonstrators faced down police dogs and fire hoses in huge nonviolent marches against segregation. Ku Klux Klansmen retaliated by bombing the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, killing four young black girls. Diane McWhorter, daughter of a prominent Birmingham family, weaves together police and FBI records, archival documents, interviews with black activists and Klansmen, and personal memories into an extraordinary narrative of the personalities and events that brought about America s second emancipation.
In a new afterword reporting last encounters with hero Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth and describing the current drastic anti-immigration laws in Alabama the author demonstrates that Alabama remains a civil rights crucible.
