“What bothers me most is that their names have been virtually erased. They are inevitably referred to as ‘the four black girls.’” – Dr. Angela Davis, excerpted from Four Little Girls: Birmingham 1963 by Christina Ham
“And so my friends, they did not die in vain. God still has a way of wringing good out of evil. And history has proven over and over again that unmerited suffering is redemptive. The innocent blood of these little girls may well serve as a redemptive force that will bring new light to this dark city.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Tickets range from $28 to $62.
