Image result for four black girls killed in alabama church blast

On this day in 1963, a bomb explodes during Sunday morning services in
the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham,
Alabama, killing four young
girls.

With its large African-American congregation, the 16th Street Baptist Church
served as a meeting place for civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr.,
who once called Birmingham a “symbol of hardcore resistance to integration.” Alabama’s governor, George Wallace, made preserving racial segregation one
of the central goals of his administration. Birmingham had one of the most
violent and lawless chapters of the
Ku Klux Klan.
