From the top left to right you see the faces of Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, Addie Mae Collins, and Cynthia Wesley. Four black girls lives were cut short due to a very very dark racist time period in this country. Their lives were consumed by flames of a white racist supremacist bomb in which exploded before a sermon given titled “the Lord that Forgives”. Look at the irony in that . This terrorist attack occurred on the date of September 15, 1963. We remember September 11, 2001 clearly in which took the lives of thousands. But the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing affected the lives of millions. It’s a damn shame we have to pick between tragedies. #Birmingham #Alabama #civilrights #hatecrime #racism #terroristattack #terrorism #murder #fourblackgirls #civilrightsmovement #strangefruit
