Birmingham 1963 by Carole Boston Weatherford

Birmingham, 1963 recounts the tragic event that took place at the Sixteenth Street Baptist church where four children were killed by a bomb. The story is told through the eyes of a young girl who is in church on that fateful day. Photographs of protest marches and the aftermath of the bombing are paired with the text. A photograph of a stained glass window with the face of Jesus blown out by the bomb is chilling.
