Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama
Anyone else see a contradiction here.
Not sure what the fish have to do with Jackson, MS, but I suppose they needed
something so they could be another trendy city with a public art project.
One of the most important parts of the trip was my visit to the Birmingham
Civil Rights Institute. No photos were allowed inside, but it was a
very well done exhibit on the Civil Rights Movement. I cried a lot while
looking at the exhibits on the Freedom Riders and public school desegregation.
It was a moving experience, everyone should visit this museum.
The Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. Still a functioning church and
historic site, where during the Civil Rights Movement four little girls were
killed by a bomb thrown into the church by segregationists. That incident
is the subject of the Spike Lee movie Four Little Girls.
This simple sign is placed outside the church.
