Summary
Contains interviews with some of the protesters. In May of 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. asked black people of Birmingham, Alabama to go to jail in the cause of racial equality. The adults were afraid to go to jail and so the school children marched and over 5000 of them were arrested. This led to President Kennedy sponsoring the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the March on Washington. Portions of this film were reenacted using vintage cameras and film stocks
