BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The city of Birmingham is planning events to mark the 50th anniversary of the civil rights protests that captured the nation's attention in 1963.
Mayor William Bell's office says many of the city's major attractions are planning events that will be held in 2013 to commemorate the historic demonstrations.
The venues that will hold events include the McWane Science Center. It once was a Loveman's Department Store that was the site of sit-ins by civil rights protesters.
The events of 1963 in Birmingham included civil rights marches led by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.; violent clashes between protesters and public safety workers; and the deadly bombing of a black church.
Bell says the commemoration can show how far Birmingham has come in the last half-century.
