Many of the struggles of the Civil Rights era are well known. Rosa Parks
refusing to give up her seat, the March on Washington, Bloody Sunday in
Selma, and the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham.
Others remain hidden, or only known to a few. In 1963, more than a dozen
African American girls, aged 13-15, were held in a stockade for two months.
Their crime: demonstrating for integration in Americus, Georgia.
