Unseen photographs of civil rights conflict in Birmingham, Alabama, 1963

 

In spring 1963,

African American civil rights activists in Alabama

started the Birmingham campaign,

a series of sit-ins, boycotts and marches against segregation laws.

The peaceful demonstrations

were met with violence, teargas and police dogs.

The events were a turning point in the civil rights movement,

making front-page news around the world.

The Observer dispatched photographer Colin Jones to cover the story

and capture the activism centred around the 16th Street Baptist church.

Many of these images, discovered in the Observerís picture archive,

have never before been published.

and Birmingham.
