Sunday Church Series - 16th Avenue Baptist Church

On September 15, 1963, this church was bombed by Ku Klux Klan members killing four little girls. This was taken from Kelly Ingram Park. It shows Elizabeth MacQueen's powerful Four Spirits sculpture with the church in the background.

So much history there. Poignant to have the sculptures in place as well.

And the mindset of the Klan is still there, even if the Klan is a mere shadow of what it once was.

Bigotry is still a shock to me, every time it crosses the path.
