In Memory: Birmingham Sunday

Today is Saturday, 15 September 2007.

On this date in 1963, at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, terrorists from the Ku Klux Klan exploded a bomb, assassinating four children. They were Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley.

The Museum of the Bourgeois honors their memories, and the memories of all other victims of white racist violence.

"Birmingham Morning", a song by Joan Baez, may be found at:,,47086-1538024-WMLO,00.html
