Local News

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — A local group is offering students a fantastic voyage into Alabama’s history. 

Community First Birmingham is sending Birmingham-area children to Montgomery to follow in the footsteps of civil rights activists. The trip will include a visit to the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, and Legacy Museum, as well as a trip to the Alabama State Capitol.

Three buses will head to Montgomery on May 4. Anyone ages 10-17 can go, and the trip is free. 

Jude Washington of Community First said, “what we’re seeing on these streets of Birmingham right now we see a lot of kids, it’s terrible, they’re destroying each so we feel that if they understand what happened in the past, then they can be able to secure a better future. ” 

To register your child, contact Community First at 205-223-1160.
The registration deadline is Sunday.
