Birmingham, 1963

Birmingham, 1963 by Carole Boston Weatherford, published by Wordsong, an imprint of Boyds Mills Press, Inc.   Told through the eyes of a fictional ten-year-old girl, this book powerfully recounts the events of the tragic day in 1963 when four young girls were killed in the bombing at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. We walk, moment through moment, with the narrator and the carefully reconstructed story of each of the four victims. The story is documented with historic photos taken at the time of the story. Honor Book for Older Children, 2008.
