      *1963 April 3- Led by Martin Luther King, Jr., the Birmingham
      anti-segregation
      campaign begins. Before it is over, more than 2,000 demonstrators,
      including King, will be arrested. The Birmingham Manifesto, issued
      by Fred Shuttlesworth of the Alabama Christian Movement for Human
      Rights the morning of the campaign, summarizes the frustration and
      hopes of the protesters: "The patience of an oppressed people cannot
      endure forever.... This is Birmingham's moment of truth in which
      every citizen can play his part in her larger destiny."
