Alabama is a southeastern U.S. state that’s home to significant landmarks from the American Civil Rights Movement. The city of Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church, which was set afire in a racially motivated bombing in 1963, and the nearby Kelly Ingram Park, where police attacked civil rights protesters between May and September 1963, now stand as symbols of freedom and civil rights. Montgomery is the state capital and site of the Rosa Parks Museum, which commemorates the activist’s refusal to give up her bus seat to a white passenger.
