Directed by Spike Lee | 1997

With Maxine McNair, Walter Cronkite, Chris McNair

"There isn't an ounce of flab or hype, and the story...is profoundly affecting."
—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

On September 15, 1963, four African-American Sunday school students, aged 11 to 14, were killed in a racially-motivated bombing at a Birmingham, Alabama church. Lee’s longtime dream project is an “immensely dignified and moving” (The New York Times) account of both the crime and, most poignantly, the lives of the girls who died, amounting to a soul-shaking portrait of what was lost that terrible day, as well as its significance within the larger civil rights movement. 35mm archival print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.
