The Carleton Reese Memorial Unity Choir

This year Birmingham commemorates 50 years of the Civil Rights Movement.  The Carlton Reese Memorial Unity Choir performed at Independent Presbyterian's Casual Worship Service on Sunday evening.  The lady on the left is 83 years old and was a founding member of this choir which began as the Alabama  Christian Movement for Human Rights Choir.  She warned us that she was 83 and to forgive her if her voice cracked. It most certainly did NOT.  She was amazing as was the entire choir.

It's wonderful, even amazing, that Birmingham has changed so much that it celebrates this event. Such energy in these shots.
