Birmingham Jail Cell - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

After he was arrested for violating a court order in Birmingham, Alabama—during April of 1963—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was incarcerated in the Birmingham City Jail.

Imprisoned in solitary confinement, between April 12 and April 20, Dr. King was kept in a very small cell. A replica of that jail cell has been created at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee.
