On This Day In TCXPI History

The 50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE 16TH STREET BOMBING, BIRMINGHAM, AL.
 
We Remember Denise McNair (11), Carole Robertson (14), Addie Mae Collins (14), and Cynthia Wesley (14), who on Sunday morning, September 15, 1963 at 10:22 a.m. were killed by a bomb planted by Ku Klux Klan members at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, AL. This senseless, murderous, and cowardice act would shock the nation and galvanize the Civil Rights movement.
