BIRMINGHAM 1963 is the story of the struggle for civil rights based on oral histories and interviews of those who were there. Performed by an ensemble of young women, ages 14-17, BIRMINGHAM 1963 highlights the critical role of young people in the campaign.
“Young people today ask me .. ‘When are we all gonna be able to get together like you all were in the 60’s?’ Nobody was together in the 60’s. It was a small group of dedicated people who got it started… and then the kids took it over.” – Andy Young, Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
