In 1963, Birmingham, Alabama, became ground zero for the U.S. civil rights movement. In an effort to stop desegregation, Governor George Wallace stood on the steps of the University of Alabama to prevent the entry of two black students. Earlier that year, while protesting segregation and economic inequality, marchers were hit with jets from a high-pressure water hose, the photographs of which became a global symbol of the South's resistance to racial progress.
Sandi Hulon and her mother, Ida, lived in Birmingham during that turbulent period. Watch as they recall the anger and fear they felt as the status quo in their state violently resisted the demand for equal rights.
