Do you know this about the Bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in 1963?
Deana Wright tells us, “Sarah was in the bathroom with Addie Mae when the bomb exploded in the 16th Street Baptist Church, in Birmingham, Alabama on that Sunday in 1963. She lost her right eye and was hospitalized for two months after the bombing, forcing her to miss her sister’s funeral. 56 years later she is still paying doctor bills, resulting from her eye injury.”
