“Let the children march,” Dr. King encouraged, hoping peaceful protests would lead to change. So they did. The children marched. Police brought out high-pressure hoses and attack dogs, jailing hundreds of children in an effort to crush their protest. But courageous children kept marching, singing anthems of freedom even as they were jailed and abused. Their march made a difference. On the tenth of May in 1963, desegregation in Birmingham, Alabama began.
