Transcript of Bombingham

Birmingham and the 4 Girls Rachel Wagner The bombing in Birmingham occurred in September 1963. However that was not the only thing that happened that year. Many tragic and depressing other events also occurred in this year. When? Where? A Baptist church in Birmingham was a meeting place for Civil Rights leaders. On the 15th of September, a bomb was placed by the church. It soon exploded and killed 4 girls and injured 15 others. They were in the church because they were there for Sunday school. Most people blamed Governor Gorge Wallace although It was really a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

This made the fight for freedom even higher for blacks. It is even worse that it was after the March on Washingtonian, where many people cam form all over the United States to protest equal right for jobs and freedom. Blacks were now determined to avenge these 4 little girls. The KKK is a group of white people who were against equal rights for blacks. They would burn down black houses, and abuse blacks for no reason. When the KKK blew up the church, with 4 innocent girls, they thought it was right and would do anything. They claim it is what the bible says so they stand for what the believed. The KKK tried to make sure blacks were segregated, but blacks stated strong. The KKK is still around today but not as active.
