BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - "Trail of Hope - The Journey to Equality" will air on WBRC FOX6 News Saturday, March 3 at 6 p.m. and Sunday, March 4 at 12 p.m.
The documentary traces the path of the civil rights struggle through churches, courthouses, jail cells and other historic sites across the South. The project was inspired by the United States Civil Rights Trail, a string of landmarks in 14 states that played a pivotal role in advancing social justice.
