HB 56 Reigniting Civil Rights Movement in Alabama

"Scott Douglas, director of Greater Birmingham Ministries, a group that advocates for equal justice issues, said the outcry coming from Blacks, Whites, and Latinos against the new law is reactivating a civil rights movement that was born in Alabama half a century ago in response to black segregation.  “What’s happening is a continuing growth of the civil rights movement,” said Douglas, who believes civil disobedience should not be out of the question."
