The Civil Tube: 4 Little Girls

Our Civil Tube video is not so short today. But rather a documentary which looks at the lives of four little girls who through no choice of their own became martyrs in the struggle for freedom and civil rights. It’s only fitting since today is the 51st anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing.

Give it a watch. Perhaps most jarring is the fact that many of the people who speak in the documentary — and were first-hand witnesses to the violence of 1960s Birmingham — are still alive. It serves as a reminder that while we may learn about these events as long-ago history from a bygone era, in fact, many people remember this tragedy as vividly as 9/11 or the Boston marathon bombing.
