Attorney General Eric Holder: The 50th Anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing

"Half a century ago this month, this safe haven was torn apart by an unspeakable act of hate. The senseless deaths of four little heroines, dressed in their Sunday finest, marked a seminal and tragic moment in our nation’s history. It sparked outrage across the country, leading to clashes between protesters and police, and drawing mourners from all races, creeds, backgrounds, and walks of life to travel to Birmingham to pay their respects."

---Attorney General Eric Holder
