COCA COLA BOTTLES - People across the country are coming together to celebrate a key milestone in United States history - and Coca-Cola is paying tribute in a special way. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement, Coca-Cola is activating a series of events, releasing a limited-edition glass bottle and providing scholarship grants to historically black colleges and universities. Through each of these activities, Coca-Cola honors a movement, begun in Birmingham, which changed the world and celebrates a future of hope and equality. In Birmingham, Coca-Cola is sponsoring events, promoting educational activities and giving back to the community through service projects throughout 2013.
