16th Street Baptist Church

The 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama has a powerful and tragic history. During the civil rights movement of the 1960s, this church served as a major organizational headquarters and rallying point for the community. On September 15th, 1963 the church was bombed and four little girls were killed in the blast. Rebuilt and standing opposite the Civil Rights Institute, it serves as a reminder of a terrible chapter in this country’s history.
