Product Description
This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Civil Rights - The Birmingham Church Bombing. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

In late summer of 1963, racial relations in the segregated South were marked by continued violence and inequality. On September 15, a bomb exploded before Sunday morning services at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, AL, a church with a predominantly black congregation that served as a meeting place for civil rights leaders.

4 young girls were killed and many other people injured; outrage over the incident and the violent clash between protesters and police that followed helped draw national attention to the hard-fought, often dangerous struggle for civil rights for African Americans. No one was initially brought to justice.

In 1977, AL Attorney General Bob Baxley reopened the investigation and Klan leader Robert E. Chambliss was brought to trial for the bombings and convicted of murder. Continuing to maintain his innocence, Chambliss died in prison in 1985.

The case was again reopened in 1980, 1988 and 1997, when 2 other former Klan members, Thomas Blanton and Bobby Frank Cherry, were finally brought to trial: Blanton was convicted in 2001. Cherry in 2002. A fourth suspect, Herman Frank Cash, died in 1994 before he could be brought to trial.)
