Anaconda, Black Lives Matter, and Church: 54 years ago today, 4 little black girls in Birmingham, Alabama were killed whern the KKK bombed their church IN MEMORY OF ADBS MKS COLLINS CAROL ROBERTSON Instead of cracking down on the white terrorist cells, the FBI and CIA worked for decades to harass, prosecute, and murder civil rights leaders. Instead of police infiltrating and disrupting the white terrorist cells, the KKK infiltrated law enforcement THIS DAY IN HISTORY . Four black schoolgirls killed in Birmingham ๐Ÿ’” . On this day in 1963, a bomb explodes during Sunday morning services in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, killing four young girls. . With its large African-American congregation, the 16th Street Baptist Church served as a meeting place for civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., who once called Birmingham a โ€œsymbol of hardcore resistance to integration.โ€ Alabamaโ€™s governor, George Wallace, made preserving racial segregation one of the central goals of his administration, and Birmingham had one of the most violent and lawless chapters of the Ku Klux Klan. . The church bombing was the third in Birmingham in 11 days after a federal order came down to integrate Alabamaโ€™s school system. Fifteen sticks of dynamite were planted in the church basement, underneath what turned out to be the girlsโ€™ restroom. The bomb detonated at 10:19 a.m., killing Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson & Addie Mae Collinsโ€“all 14 years oldโ€“and 11-year-old Denise McNair. Immediately after the blast, church members wandered dazed & bloodied, covered with white powder and broken stained glass, before starting to dig in the rubble to search for survivors. More than 20 other members of the congregation were injured in the blast. . When thousands of angry black protesters assembled at the crime scene, Wallace sent hundreds of police and state troopers to the area to break up the crowd. Two young black men were killed that night, one by police and another by racist thugs. Meanwhile, public outrage over the bombing continued to grow, drawing international attention to Birmingham. At a funeral for three of the girls (oneโ€™s family preferred a separate, private service), King addressed more than 8,000 mourners. . A well-known Klan member, Robert Chambliss, was charged with murder : with buying 122 sticks of dynamite. In October 1963, Chambliss was cleared of the murder charge & received a six-month jail sentence & a $100 fine for the dynamite. Although a subsequent FBI investigation identified three other men. .
