Remembering Dr. King: Carolyn King on Birmingham’s School Integration (pt 1)

In remembrance of the historic events surrounding the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Max Eternity interviews Carolyn Miller-King of San Francisco.  King, who–as far as she knows–is of no relation to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., recalls her experiences being born and raised in Birmingham Alabama, during the era of Jim Crow and challenges of the 1960’s civil rights struggle.  She also shares about what it was like to be a pioneer in desegregation; having been one of the first African-Americans to integrate public schools in the Southeastern United States.
