Yesterday, President Obama, through a proclamation under the Antiquities Act, established the Birmingham Civil Rights and Freedom Riders National Monuments.
Bham Now has compiled a list of links from television, radio and newspaper stories that have been published online in the past 12 hours. With the help of photographer Larry Gay, we’ve also created a special photo gallery.
First – the photo gallery.
Here are the stories/media outlets that have produced stories:
Birmingham Business Journal –Obama designates Birmingham Civil Rights District a national monument
WIAT CBS 42 – Civil Rights district declared a national monument, Mayor Bell announces
WBHM Public Radio –Birmingham Civil Rights District Named National Monument
What an incredible day for Birmingham, Anniston and the state of Alabama.
