  • Any time one has the opportunity to PHYSICALLY stand where those who proceeded you in the shaping of YOUR people, you should EMBRACE those moments in REVERENCE!!!
  • Went to see this historic church, then I went in. With a music service similar to a spirit lead sister act 2 scene, and a message that was unhinged, it is unquestionable that God is moving here.
  • This is a beautiful church and sits right across from the civil rights institute. If you don't know the history behind it you probably won't appreciate it but it is worth reading up on.
  • I along with my sister and several young ladies from my church had the honor of visiting this church while in Birmingham for a national Baptist convention. We were amazed by being able to experience this iconic event in history. I dont say this in terms of the actions in1963 being something pleasant but in seeing and sitting in this place where such a tragic event occurred. I felt great sadness in the presence of the mementoes left by the friends of these four beautiful young girls. I recalled my own experiences of growing up in the church and what the scene was like if I had been in my own church when a tragic event like this occurred. We all considered this the highlight of our trip, something we will never forget. Living in California, I don't have many opportunities to experience Black history at the forefront, so this truly was a life alerting experience. If you are ever in Birmingham, please go to this ironic place and visit and also go to the civil rights museum across the street and Freedom Park. I promise you it will be a day well spent. All my prays at this moment go out to the 16 the Street Baptist Church family and the family and friends of the four little girls from their family lost in this great human tragic event.
  • It is beautiful because of the inspirational memorial.
