Interviews with Audrey, Wash, James, and Arnetta, participants as children in the 1963 Birmingham Children’s March, recreate the rarely-related story of this important civil rights event. After they protested peacefully, they were arrested and jailed. Archival photographs and extensive author notes complement the well-researched narrative of their role in Birmingham’s desegregation.
