"Ordinary people" - like the people who made the civil rights movement in Birmingham.

Most of them were not famous; more often they were faceless.

They were seldom the noted; most often they were nameless - marchers with tired feet, protestors beaten back, unknown women and men who risked job and home and life.

A visitor to Birmingham today will find the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, an imposing structure built with taxpayers' money, a remarkable fact in contrast to taxpayer sponsored hosility to the movement not quite 40 years ago.
