It was a time of reflection during the City of Birmingham's Empowerment Week. Part of the celebration Thursday included a premiere of the movie "The Watsons go to Birmingham".
Many lined up outside of the Alabama Theatre to watch the movie, which is about a close-knit Michigan family that traveled to Birmingham at the height of the Civil Rights Movement.
The movie premieres on the Hallmark Channel September 2.
