(1963) A truce in Birmingham's racial strife comes as the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and associates call a temporary halt to mass demonstrations and "freedom marches" in the Southern city. King said he believed honest attempts were being made by white business leaders to settle racial differences. With him are the Rev. Fred L. Shuttlesworth, head of the Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights (second from right), and the Rev. Ralph D. Abernathy, King's chief assistant. Religion News Service file photo
