Birmingham Civil Rights Institute


A starkly realistic lesson in history weaves throughout the city's Civil Rights District, which includes the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and adjacent Kelly Ingram Park. Once a gathering place for civil rights demonstrations, the park today is dotted with poignant sculptures recalling key events, including the May 1963 incident when police dogs and firehoses were turned on marchers. Self-guided audio tours are available at the Institute.
