In the spring of 1963, activists in Birmingham, Alabama dispatched a standout amongst the most persuasive battles of the Civil Rights Movement: Project C, otherwise called The Birmingham Campaign. It would be the start of a progression of lunch counter sit-ins, walks on City Hall and blacklists on downtown traders to dissent isolation laws in the city.
Throughout the following couple months, the quiet exhibits would be met with brutal assaults utilizing high-weight flame hoses and police mutts on men, ladies and kids alike - creating probably the most notorious and alarming pictures of the Civil Rights Movement. President John F. Kennedy would later say, "The occasions in Birmingham... have so expanded the weeps for balance that no city or state or authoritative body can wisely decide to overlook them." It is viewed as one of the real defining moments in the Civil Rights Movement and the "start of the end" of a centuries-in length battle for flexibility.
