Project "C" in Birmingham & The March on Washington The Civil Rights Movement

Birmingham is the largest city in Alabama, and Project "C" is confrontation. Governor George Wallace said "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever." --------------------January 1963.
Martin Luther King is arrested, and he writes his famous "Letter from Birmingham Jail," which justifies the movement.

Even the first day, there are hundreds people have been arrested and on may 3rd there are thounsand s kids that is trying to protest for peace get Connor's high pressure fire hoses and police dogs. The jail was full by the protesters and most of them are children.

It is a neutrality describe about the situation in Birmingham. Connor's outrages served as catalysts for major social and legal change in the Southern United States and contributed to passage by the United States Congress of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 . Martin Luther King is one of the leader of civil rights movement, so he is trying to make desegregation happened.
It a person from AL and support with what Connor is doing, so he said that Martin Luther King are go there for friendship and dollars which is make people believe they are wrong and think what they are doing right that time was the thing that they should do. This post also make people to misunderstand the reason for jail and paying fines.

Soon after the events in Birmingham, civil rights leaders announce plans for a mass march in Washington, D.C. people are much for for jobs and freedom.

The March on Washington-August 28, 1963
On August 28, more than 200,000 people gather in peace and unity on the National Mall.
"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character..."----Martin Luther King

Even it was successful march, BUT less than three weeks later, in Birmingham, the Ku Klux Klan bombs the 16th Street Baptist Church on a Sunday morning. Fifteen people are injured and four young girls are killed.

It a really professional report from The New York Times and it can shows the influence of the March in Washington and it shows that people are support to have equal rights and there are huge amount people think it is right and
It a report that analysis the way they are doing March, in this content's view it will not going well the most of struggle are between the local and federal level, and they are really worry about the safety problem the way the march will bring. This also can shows asking for equal rights is majority Blacks want.
