    Make literacy a significant part of Black History Month. Birmingham attorney Eric Guster will read to students and library assistant Candice Hardy will perform. Ideal for preschool to first grade.

    In 1963 the world turned its attention to Birmingham, Alabama as peaceful civil rights demonstrators faced police dogs and fire hoses in a battle for freedom and equality. Later that year four girls died in the bombing of Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. "It was the year of Birmingham," Martin Luther King, Jr. said at the time. Today, Birmingham is now recognized around the world as a symbol of both racial intolerance and racial reconciliation. 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.
