Kelly Ingram Park
"A Place of Revolution and Reconciliation"
Birmingham's Kelly Ingram Park is the highly visited public space that was once considered to be the 'epicenter of the nation's Civil Right's Movement', a 4-acre park sitting in the heart of the Civil Rights District.
Within this park, you will see various sculptures and monuments featuring vivid depictions of the demonstrations of the 1960s, this park being the main site of many sit-ins, boycotts, marches, and jailings. This park, then known as West Park, saw so much of this action because it was officially chosen as the assembly point for the SCLC's Project C (Project Confrontation).
While visiting your group can download the mobile phone guided audio tour and follow along with the path as you learn about each different sculpture, the act behind it, and it's importance in the Civil Rights Movement overall.
