The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s was a struggle for social justice and an end to institutional racism, disenfranchisement, and racial segregation in the United States.  In Alabama, the cities of Montgomery, Birmingham, and Selma were host to some of the most significant events of the decades-long campaign. Here, the Movement's national leadership took shape and tens of thousands of people came together to advance the cause against remarkable odds and violent resistance.
