Civil rights marchers

December 12-16, 1961, Martin Luther King, Jr. and his forces launched an attack against segregation and discrimination in Albany, GA. Mass arrests and political maneuverings frustrated the effort. The Albany debacle taught civil rights leaders lessons for future massive assaults on segregation.
