Sobering photos from the Civil Rights Movement

Some cities just can’t catch a break as a must-see destination. They also carry a heavy past needing a proud update. That was Montgomery’s dilemma despite Rosa Parks, a local black woman, refusing to move to the back of a city bus. That 1955 event ignited the Civil Rights Movement nationwide. It also ignited a hate bomb on the porch of 27-year-old, Pastor Martin Luther King’s parsonage in Montgomery. He then led a year-long bus boycott and became the movement’s crusader nationwide, a role that cost him his life.
