50 years after 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, Birmingham
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
The 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama was bombed on Sunday, September 15, 1963. The racially motivated explosion at the African-American church, which killed four girls, marked a turning point in the U.S. 1960s Civil Rights Movement and contributed to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Check out my video/photos with 16th Street Baptist Church administrator, Lamar Washington talking about the moment in time we will never forget.
