The Birmingham Riots were between the police and African American men, women, and children fighting for civil rights in 1963. Birmingham police attacked protesters with powerful hoses and police dogs.
With plans to desegregate, King set up business boycotts with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference which ended up in multiple arrests.
Birmingham Riots are compared to the Black Lives Matter protests that have recently been going on across America.
The Black Lives Matter movement is a international activist movement as was the Birmingham Riots in 1963. BLM campaigns against violence and racism towards black people.
Black Lives Matter started in 2012 after Trayvon Marton's murder. Black Lives Matter goes beyond just extrajudicial killings of black people by police and vigilantes.
