On #tdih, May 2, 1963, thousands of children in Birmingham, Ala. left school at a designated time to launch a massive demonstration with plans to fill the jails. Here are resources to bring the history of the Children's March to the classroom including a film from Teaching Tolerance, a book for middle school, and a website with first hand stories from Birmingham residents: http://zinnedproject.org/materials/the-childrens-march/ Photo: Police send a group of African American school children to jail, following their arrest for protesting against racial discrimination near the city hall of Birmingham, Ala., on May 4, 1963.
