Some American Travels - Part 1 - Montgomery Alabama

May 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Last year I was able to visit some of the southern states of America in the run up to the Presidential Election. After flying into Atlanta, Georgia the first stop was Montgomery Alabama. In 2016 it was a very quiet town but it has a remarkable history. From 1954 to 1960 Martin Luther King Jr was the pastor in the Baptist Church on Dexter Avenue (Pictured Below). It was here he organised the Montgomery Bus Boycott where Rosa Parks an African American woman refused to give up her seat to a white person in December 1955.

It was also here where Martin Luther King Jr in 1965 spoke to 25,000 people to demonstrate African Americans desire to exercise their voting rights. There are a few more photos in the gallery if you click on the picture below.
