In this historical year when Birmingham remembers the Civil Rights struggle of 1963, Karl Friedman, then a practicing attorney in Birmingham who had already served in many positions of leadership in the general and Jewish community, recalls for us how the Jewish people and community responded to the momentous events that were taking place as the African American community fought the battle for equal rights.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Birmingham's civil rights struggle, the Birmingham Public Library is sponsoring the Year of Birmingham, a 12-month series of lectures, documentary films, performances and panel discussions.
