A plaque outside of 16th St. Baptist Church commemorates the 1963 Freedom Walk, also known as the “Children’s Crusade,” July 12, 2015, in Birmingham, Alabama. The march, made up predominantly of elementary school children, teenagers, and college students, began at 16th St. Baptist Church and continued to City Hall. Thousands were arrested, including an eight-year-old boy. The Birmingham Police Department then attacked the protestors with high-powered water hoses and police dogs. (Photo by Carmen K.
