We ve Got a Job tells the little-known story from the 4,000 black elementary-, middle-, and high school college students who voluntarily went to jail in Birmingham, Alalama, between May 2 and May 11, 1963. Focusing on four of the original participants who have participated in extensive interviews, We ve Got a Job recounts the astonishing events before, during, and after the Children s March. Fulfilling Mahatma Gandhi s and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. s precept to fill the jails, they succeeded where adults had failed in desegregating amongst essentially the most racially violent cities in America.
