Well it was June 9th, 1964 when Rev. T.Y Rogers and others set out to march from First African Baptist Church to the Tuscaloosa County Courthouse.
The purpose of the march was to protest the colored and white signs in the courthouse. The marchers never made it because the police chief and his officers stopped and beat many innocent men, women and children some severely.
On that day, 33 men, women and children were hospitalized and 94 were arrested. That's why we have Bloody Tuesday. All for justice.
