Free Kindle book on 50th anniversary of Birmingham church bombing

While the World Watched: A Birmingham Bombing Survivor Comes of Age during the Civil Rights Movement

Publication Date: February 1, 2011
On September 15, 1963, a Klan-planted bomb went off in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. Fourteen-year-old Carolyn Maull was just a few feet away when the bomb exploded, killing four of her friends in the girl’s rest room she had just exited. It was one of the seminal moments in the Civil Rights movement, a sad day in American history . . . and the turning point in a young girl’s life.
While the World Watched is a poignant and gripping eyewitness account of life in the Jim Crow South—from the bombings, riots and assassinations to the historic marches and triumphs that characterized the Civil Rights movement.
A uniquely moving exploration of how racial relations have evolved over the past 5 decades, While the World Watched is an incredible testament to how far we’ve come and how far we have yet to go.

5. Joe Madison (on Sirus XM) just had her on this past Friday

for an extended interview about her book. She was fascinating to listen to and mentioned how she had been traveling around for years telling her story and how a number of people told her that she should get it down in writing and publish a book. And so she did.

Bravo to her and am downloading now.
