We remembered Tupac’s death. Somebody’s gotta remember these 4 little girls. Be mindful.
In addition to the friends & families who have never forgotten them, Spike Lee’s first full-length documentary, Four Little Girls (1997) (watch it via GoogleVideo here) focuses on the tragically too-short lives of Cynthia, Addie Mae, Denise, & Carole who were blown up while waiting for Sunday School to start in the basement of Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. It is excellent.
(Also, Angela Y Davis, a native of Birmingham & resident of Dynamite Hill talks in her autobiography about going to school with 3 of the young ladies who died that day, why she happened to not be in Sunday School that morning, and how that particular terrorist’s act shaped her life going forward. (Davis et al., 1974, p.184)
