16th Street Baptist Church, a dark chapter in AL history…

The 16th Street Baptist Church is the site of a 1963 bombing by the Ku Klux Klan. The bomb killed 4 young African American girls. NPR covered the story and events again in 2003, watch and listen HERE. Across the street, one will find a memorial park with a statue of Dr. Martin Luther King.
*If you decide to visit the area, be aware that you will be approached for money by the homeless… Kudzublue has visited the site many times, and each time has been approached. 🙂
