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 restroom 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.
