A moving reflection. Seeing a few artifacts saved from this bombing in the AA Museum in DC was very moving. It’s easy to forget such a tragedy when you weren’t alive at the time and live so far away. Seeing those things made it that more real fit me. Get there if you can! #nationalafricanamericanmuseum Repost @randall_woodfin
Today at 16th Street Baptist Church, we reflect back on one of the darkest days in American history – that day 55 years ago when a bomb robbed four little girls of their future. But this day isn’t about tragedy. It’s about triumph. Those girls became our rallying cry. We marched, we fought, we voted. We made change in their name. They taught our country of the evils of racism. They are the reason our fight continues today.
Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson and Carol Denise McNair. Say their names. We owe them everything. #neverforget
