Black America' s 9/11... We Will Never Forget. ..

We Will Never Forget...

Four little girls were dressed in their Sunday best for the morning services of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama on September 15, 1963. At 10:19 a.m., a bomb detonated in the church basement killing 14-year-old Cynthia Wesley, Addie Mae Collins, and Carole Robertson- and 11-year -old Denise McNair. Over 20 other members of the church congregation were injured in the blast. This only two and half weeks after Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

The young ladies would eventually become icons of the civil rights movement but first they were just four little black girls:

Cynthia

Cynthia Dionne Wesley was born in Birmingham, Alabama, on April 30, 1949. She was the adopted daughter of Claude and Gertrude Wesley.

Carole

Carole Rosamond Robertson was raised in Birmingham, Alabama and was born on April 24, 1949. She lived in the predominately black neighborhood, Smithfield with her father Alvin, her mother, Alpha, and her older brother and sister, Alvin Jr. and Dianne.

Addie Mae

Born on April 18, 1949, Addie Mae Collins lived in Birmingham, Alabama with her parents, Julius and Alice, along with her six siblings.

Denise

Carole Denise McNair, born on November 17, 1951, lived in Birmingham Alabama with her parents, Chris and Maxine McNair.

These girls were daughters, sisters, and friends.
