Report and Proposal for Massive Nonviolent Civil Disobedience in Montgomery
Diane Nash Bevel, September, 1963

[After the Birmingham Church Bombing, Diane Nash Bevel attends the memorial for the four murdered girls in September of 1963. Determined that something positive should result from the atrocity, she proposes a massive campaign of nonviolent disobedience to force Governor Wallace from office and win voting rights for all Alabama adults. Over the next year, the plan evolves into the Alabama Project and then inspiration for the Selma Voting Rights Campaign of 1965.]
