Rep. Sewell Recognizes 55th Rememberance of the 16th St Baptist Church Bombing

Sep 14, 2018

Rep. Sewell took the House floor to remember the 55th observance of the bombing of 16th Street Baptist Church and to commemorate the lives and legacies of four precious little girls – Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Morris Wesley – who were murdered during that devastating attack 55 years ago. On September 15, 1963, at 10:22 am, the four girls were dressing to sing with the church choir when a bomb went off.
