Social Action Week Kickoff
Social Action Week begins with a 50th anniversary commemoration of the Sept. 15, 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama.
The Black Student Alliance will host the commemoration of the bombing, which killed four young girls, horrified the nation, and marked a turning point in the Civil Rights Movement. The four girls were posthumously presented with the Congressional Gold Medal on Sept. 10.
