Spike Lee’s documentary powerfully tells the story of one of our nation’s most notorious hate crimes. Four girls between the ages of 11 and 14 were killed fifty years ago on September 15, 1963, when a black church in Birmingham, Alabama, was bombed. Lee’s Oscar-nominated film honors this profound turning point in civil rights history, using the echoes of Birmingham to explore continued racial violence in America.
