(FULL) Footsoldier of Birmingham
- Open to All GradesOpen to All Grades
Birmingham, 1963. The image of a police dog viciously attacking a young black protester shocks the nation. The picture, taken in the midst of one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s most famous marches, might be the most iconic photograph of the civil rights movement. But few have ever bothered to ask the people in the famous photograph what they think happened that day. It’s more complicated than it looks. This workshop and podcast walk explores the history of this compelling statue and the moment in history it memorializes. (Need headphones and way to play podcast. Dress warm.)
