Remembering the 1963 Children’s March

Video from Omar García Pérez Youtube Channel

Check out this powerful video that chronicles the historic Birmingham Children’s March/Crusade of 1963.  These children risked their own personal safety to protest injustice.  It is ironic that the children were called into service because possibly adult were not willing to take the risk.

Gwen Gamble was one of the youth who took part in the Children’s March.  When asked about the march she commented, “We left the church with our picket signs and our walking shoes…..Some of us even had our rain coats because we knew that we were going to be hosed down by the water hoses
