Alabama Civil Rights sites featured in USA WEEKEND

Several Alabama Civil Rights sites including the King Memorial Baptist Church in Montgomery and the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham were featured in the USA WEEKEND newspaper supplement this past weekend. USA WEEKEND is carried in more than 600 newspapers and has a readership of 49.2 million.
 
From the article “Visit civil rights sights” by Everett Potter in the Feb 6-8 edition of USA WEEKEND:
 
The Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church in Montgomery, Ala. was the heart of the Montgomery bus boycott from 1955-56. The boycott, which was spearheaded by the church’s new minister, King, eventually transformed Rosa Parks into a civil rights pioneer. If you visit the historic 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., the nearby Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is a gem that offers a wide range of multimedia exhibits that bring the entire history of the civil rights movement into sharp focus.  http://www.usaweekend.com/09_issues/090208/090208thinksmart-travel-civil-rights.html
