September 15 1963: on this day the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing: Four children killed at an African-American church in Birmingham, Alabama
Spike Lee created a wonderful, Academy award nominated film, 4 Little Girls,which is full and free to watch online.
It’s a historical documentary about their murders and includes archival footage and photos, but what I found to be most compelling is the interviews with the girls’ parents and loved ones. IT’S A FRESH WOUND.
And you don’t even want to know when the perpetrators were brought to justice… Here’s a hint, one of them died an old man before he was convicted!!
