Birmingham Sunday by Larry Brimner
In 1963 in Birmingham, Alabama a church was bombed which resulted in the deaths of four young African-American girls. This book tells the story of those girls but also the events in Alabama that led up to that bombing. It also talks about the two other young victims of that day who were killed as a result of the racism and anger on that day.
