Martin Luther King - Birmingham campaign

Time: Monday Apr 1, 1963

Place: Birmingham, Alabama, U.S.

Details: In April 1963, the SCLC began a campaign against racial segregation and economic injustice in Birmingham, Alabama.

Black people in Birmingham, organizing with the SCLC, occupied public spaces with marches and sit-ins, openly violating laws that they considered unjust.
