BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Images taken during riots and protests in Ferguson, Missouri are being compared to scenes from Birmingham in 1963.
Photos circulating online are being placed side-by-side with pictures from Birmingham Civil Rights Movement. In one image, crowds of people stand with their hands in the air as police officers with dogs stand guard.
In others, protestors are lined up standing face to face with officers in riot gear. The images are eerily similar to those taken during a tumultuous time in Birmingham’s history.
