Episode Summary

No Easy Walk - 1961-1963
From PBS - This episode depicts major civil rights movement events in three American cities: Albany, Georgia, where in a test of nonviolent tactics, police chief Laurie Pritchett overshadows Martin Luther King, Jr.; Birmingham, Alabama, where children march against Bull Connor's fire hoses and where King, working on the ground prepared by local leaders, forges a badly needed victory; and the march on Washington, D.C., which reveals broad support for the civil rights movement. The program also explores the sucess of various political tactics, alternatives to these tactics, and the involvement of the federal government in movement activity.moreless
