Trail of Hope

Sites of Violence, Sites of Healing

Birmingham, Alabama, a city whose name is almost synonymous with the Civil Rights Movement, was the site of much bloodshed and strife as civil rights leaders faced strong opposition and the attempted destruction of their churches and meeting places. Birmingham struggled to shed the stigma of violence and injustice, and today is home to several memorials and one of the country’s premier civil rights museums. A visit to Birmingham offers a sobering and reflective experience for anyone interested in this important era of American history.
