In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement the Bessemer Hall of History Museum held an open house on April 4, 2013, the anniversary date of Martin Luther King, Jr's death.
The unveiling of the Cell Block Door from the Bessemer Jefferson County Jail, in which Dr. King was incarcerated in October 1967 was the highlight of the evening.
