Remembering the Bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church (Youtube Video)

Slide10e

 

This month marks one of the most heinous acts of terrorism to occur on U.S. soil. An act committed by Americans against Americans, with four little girls among the lives lost and seriously injured. This remembers the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church that happened 50 years ago. The more I read about this horrible crime against mankind and God, the more I convinced that this story is being lost, particularly on a generation that searches for identity.

African Americans have endured much. This proud people has come through journeys unlike any other. And these journeys have likewise speak of a country that has and continues to evolve along the way.

I simply could not allow this month to pass without giving honor to those who lived through and died on that fateful Sunday morning of September 15, 1963 in Birmingham. My desire is to provide information about the people and places connected to this event that has not received a proper focus in history. My solemn prayer is viewers of all races ponder statements and questions raised, as well as those that speak to the soul. Place yourself in that moment.

And please share with others and leave comments. Let’s have a conversation that makes us all better people.
