Birmingham Church Boming

The Birmingham Church Bombing happened all because of one reason..... Civil right between different colored people black and white. Before the bombing the church was used as a meeting place for Martin-Luther King. Jr, Ralph David Abernathy and Fred Shutterworth.On Sunday, 15th September, 1963 One of the whites got mad because the African Americans were going to be able to vote in Birmingham. That day the white man put a bomb on one of the steps and at 10:22 am the church was bombed killing many innocent people, like Denise McNair (11), Addie Mae Collins (14), Carole Robertson (14) and Cynthia Wesley many people did die but the choir kept singing about FREEDOM.
