A G Gaston Motel
The National Historic Register lists the A G Gaston Motel as one of the most endangered in the United States.
It was -- coincidentally -- built in the same year as the SCOTUS ruling in Brown vs Topeka -- 1954. Nine years later Birmingham, Alabama still had segregated schools, restaurants, churches and stores and had closed " …seventy-seven parks, thirty-eight playgrounds, eight swimming pools, four golf courses, the zoo, the art museum and the state fair, as well as the municipal auditorium and Legion Field Stadium (Home of The Crimson Tide)…instead of opening their doors for all."
In April 1963 the incredibly brave, local Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth -- for whom the Birmingham International Airport is now named -- met with Dr Martin Luther King, Jr and other members of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Room 30 to plan Project C -- for Confrontation.
