BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — The Birmingham City Council has pardoned six women who were arrested in 1963 for protesting segregation-era laws.

The pardons were presented by Mayor William Bell during a city council meeting Tuesday morning. The pardons were authorized by an act approved by the Alabama Legislature in 2006.

The pardoned women are Betty J. King, Carolyn Louise King, Gwendolyn L. King, Patricia Rose Wooding, Sandra R. Wooding and Mariea Wooding. In 1964, Carolyn King, now known as C. Tasmiya King-Miller, integrated Jones Valley High School.

The six women were active in civil-rights era protests in Birmingham and all participated in the historic March on Washington in 1963.
