USA – The Civil Rights Trail

USA. The Historic Bethel Baptist Church Collegeville where Fred Shuttlesworth served as pastor from 1953 to 1961. The church buildings were bombed on three separate occasions, first on December 25, 1956, then on June 29, 1958, and on December 14, 1962. After the boycott of the Montgomery buses, Reverend Frederick Lee “Fred” Shuttlesworth, together with Rev. King Jr, founded in 1957 the Southern Christian Leadership Conference for the defense of the rights of the Afro-american minority and the end of racial segregation.
