National Black United Front (NBUF) commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the bombing of 16th Street Baptist Church that killed four little girls in Birmingham, Alabama on Sunday, September 15, 1963.
The church served as a meeting place for many civil rights leaders and served as a training post for civil rights campaigns. Tensions within the Birmingham community elevated when the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the Congress on Racial Equality (CORE) supported a voter registration campaign for African Americans to vote in Birmingham. The bombing was an act of racially charged terrorism and is considered a pivotal turning point in the civil rights movement.
All members of the community are welcome to join NBUF in this 50th Anniversary Commemoration.
Date: Sunday, September 15
Time: 4 p.m.
Place: Emergence Community Arts Collective, 733Euclid St. NW, WDC
