60 YEARS AGO, a young visionary preacher had the courage to begin a campaign that led to the fall of segregation in one of the most segregated cities in the United States. Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, along with other soon-to-be Modern Day Civil Rights icons, challenged city officials, including public safety commissioner Eugene “Bull” Connor, through peaceful, but extremely dangerous demonstrations. The Birmingham eventually led to the U.S. Congress passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This law ended segregation in public accommodations in the United States.
