The Birmingham Campaign

A Model for Civil Action and Non-Violent Protests

In 1963, MLK and his Southern Christian Leadership Conference based in Atlanta went to Birmingham, Alabama to support the local civil rights movement. They helped organize black students, activists, and churches in what was later called, the “Birmingham Campaign.”

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

Strength to Love, 1963
