Alabama NewsCenter — Alabama’s famed Sixteenth Street Baptist Church launches capital campaign for new visitor center, historic restoration

1 min read

By: Alabama News Center Staff

Last year was a momentous time of commemoration for Birmingham’s Sixteenth Street Baptist Church.

Not only was it the 150th anniversary of the predominantly Black church’s founding, just two years after Birmingham was officially established; it also marked the 60th anniversary of the targeted, racial terrorist bombing of the church that killed four little girls during the height of the human rights campaign to end the city’s segregation laws.

Now the church, at the center of the modern civil rights struggle, is taking on a new campaign: to raise $7.5 million for a major expansion and restoration effort.
