Abstract:

On September 15, 1963, during Sunday school classes at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, a bomb exploded, killing four girls: Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, Cynthia Wesley and Addie Mae Collins. In the early 1960's many college students came to the South from around the country to help the civil rights movement. In the "Freedom Summer" of 1964, three students, Michael Schwerner, James Chaney, and Andrew Goodman were murdered shortly after being released from a jail in Philadelphia, Mississippi. The subsequent federal trial became one of the first to eventually bring convictions for crimes against civil rights activitsts. Outrage over their killing helped spur passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
