Title:Eileen Kelley Walbert

In the 1960s, Birmingham, Alabama's strict segregation laws, and violence against blacks, inspired whites like Eileen Walbert, shown in this interview, to form the Concerned White Citizens of Alabama. Walbert and other sympathetic whites participated in demonstrations for racial equality. Like many civil rights activists, they too suffered reprisals.

Includes a background essay, discussion questions, and alignments to teaching standards.
