Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was arrested for protesting the treatment of blacks in Birmingham, Alabama. The court had issued an order that King wasn’t allowed to hold protest in Birmingham. Everything was separated between the blacks and whites. The blacks were only allowed to sit in certain areas from businesses, churches, libraries; they weren’t even allowed to use public restrooms. Everywhere that the blacks went they were at a constant discrimination and a threat of violence. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. initiated a civil rights movement that after many obstacles was a success and caused desegregation in schools and retail places.
