On Thursday, March 27th, the People’s Organization for Progress will host special guest Sarah Collins-Rudolph, the lone child survivor of the racist terror bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama that took place on September 15th, 1963.
Rudolph will be received at the P.O.P. general assembly meeting at 6:30 pm. The 16th Street Baptist Church bombing was one of the most horrific acts of terror against the Civil Rights Movement. The bombing killed four black children who were attending Sunday school on that fateful morning. Although Rudolph survived the horror, she incurred permanent injuries as a consequence of the sinister act.
The evening’s gathering will also present lifetime commitment awards to elder female freedom fighters Claudette Colvin, Theodora Lacey and Willa Cofield.
