Airport could be named after Rev Shuttlesworth

(BIRMINGHAM, AL) -- Local civil rights leader Fred Shuttlesworth will be honored in Birmingham.  That city wants to re-name its airport after him.

He fought for civil rights and social justice alongside Martin Luther King throughout the south.

A final vote by the airport is scheduled for next month.
