Owner description: Four young girls were killed when a Ku Klux Klan bomb exploded in this church in 1963. The girls are remembered with a shrine in the crypt where they died, and a vibrant stained glass window donated in sympathy by the people of Wales adorns the historic church.

An absolute must to allow you to judge where Birmingham was during the Civil Rights Movement and where Birmingham is going. 4 young innocent children died here one day for no other reason than they were black and their story needs to be heard.

A beautiful church and a somber reminder of how far we have come in recent history towards equal rights for all. The civil rights district, and kelly ingram park round out a must see tour.

The church was locked so we could not go in. There was not much to see except a plaque dedicated to the 4 girls who died there. Glad to see that history is preserved at that spot, but I wish we could have gotten into the church.

As a girl I saw the news about the bombing on TV. Wanted to see for myself.
Moving.
Park across street is also important in Civil Rights history.
