Mention Birmingham and 1963, and anyone familiar with American history will recall the iconic Civil Rights struggle that took place. They should know the name of Bull Conner and how he faced hundreds of African American children with hoses and vicious attack dogs while filling Birmingham's jail cells. Kelly Ingram Park is THE primary location where this all took place, and the legacy of those days is now marked with a variety of statues and plaques to educate current and future generations.
It's located directly across the street from the 16th St. Baptist Church and the Civil Rights Institute, and has markers to trace the path of the Children's March to city hall.
