Birmingham, Alabama: Historic Player in the Civil Right Movement, Now a Modern and Diverse City

Birmingham was a major site during the nation's Civil Rights struggle in the 1960s. Marches and other forms of non-violent protest against segregation took over the city's streets. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote his famous Letter from Birmingham Jail while behind bars. These acts ultimately led to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which ended racial segregation in schools and other public places. Visitors can learn more about the city's part in the Civil Rights movement downtown at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.

The Birmingham of today is a thriving, diverse cultural hub. Its downtown streets are a mix of new and old—shiny, new shopping complexes share sidewalks with historic landmarks such as The Alabama Theater, built in 1927. Throughout the city you'll find funky art galleries next door to antique shops, lively nightclubs just down the street from historic churches, and restaurants serving hearty, simple Southern dishes alongside fancy, James Beard-recognized ones. The walkable Five Points South neighborhood, where The Hotel Highland is located, has a particularly high concentration of award-winning restaurants, as well as important landmarks such as the 100-year-old Highlands United Methodist Church.
