The Metro Birmingham NAACP is launching a new program to find Foot Soldiers.

It is inviting Foot Soldiers that were taken to the fairgrounds, juvenile detention centers or arrested and their relatives, who wish to register their deceased Foot Soldier/loved ones with the group, to be included and recognized during the historical time of reflection and celebration. Hezekiah Jackson IV, President of the Metro Birmingham Branch NAACP says, "Yes, we want to know about Foot Soldiers, who helped, marched, were arrested and contributed to the cause of Freedom."

The event kicked off Thursday at Kelly Ingram Park. The program is in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the 1963 Civil Rights Movement.
