Birmingham, AL

Today we finished up our sites to see in Birmingham, AL. We were able to find an open door at the 16th Street Baptist Church. It was absolutely beautiful.

While in Montgomery, AL we visited the Rosa Parks Museum. Unfortunately we weren't able to take photos while on the tour, but we could while in the Exhibit. There were many wonderful paintings displayed.

We also took a walk through Kelly Ingram Park. It was filled with statues showing how terrible police brutality towards blacks was.

We also experienced some of the culture of Birmingham which was very fun. We went to some shops downtown that had many things you would never find in Eau Claire, WI.
