While the World Watched: A Birmingham Bombing Survivor Comes of Age during the Civil Rights Movement

Denise George

On September 15, 1963, a Klan-planted bomb went off within the sixteenth highway Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. Fourteen-year-old Carolyn Maull used to be quite a few toes away while the bomb exploded, killing 4 of her neighbors within the girl’s restroom she had simply exited. It was once one of many seminal moments within the Civil Rights move, a tragic day in American heritage . . . and the turning aspect in a tender girl’s life.

While the area Watched is a poignant and gripping eyewitness account of existence within the Jim Crow South: from the bombings, riots, and assassinations to the historical marches and triumphs that characterised the Civil Rights movement.

A uniquely relocating exploration of the way racial kinfolk have developed during the last five many years, While the realm Watched is a tremendous testomony to how some distance we’ve come and the way a ways we've got but to head.
