I really wanted more from this tour. We arrived 15 minutes early as the email instructed and read the historical boards in the basement while we waited. The first 30 minutes of the hour-long tour...

Came here to see this part of History. And I wanted to see the glass from Wales. I talked to someone here and they said for me to come in I have to pay $10. I don't see anyone else talking about the fee. I've never heard of a church where you have to pay to come into it. Really? A church that charges you to come through the door. Disgusting. Wanting to make a buck off something religious like this. If they were serious about their mission they should not only do it for free they should be inviting people in from all walks of life and welcoming everyone. Apparently they don't want to make a difference. They just want to make some extra cash. I've been in churches that have been on the national registry That have not charged a penny. I just I'm really disappointed. Did I pay for it? No way. I don't want a tour. I just wanted to enjoy the church.
Tony, Noel and I visited the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham Alabama. This church is steeped with history especially during the Civil Rights in the 60s. This is the church that was bombed killing several innocent little girls. Very sad history! The church is beautiful and you can tour it for free! If you are in the area you definitely need to visit the church.
We were excited to visit this historic civil rights location. Although known for a sad event, I am proud to be able to visit the memorial site. My visit allowed me to be a part of our American history decades later.
Absolutely worth your time to stop in to this historic church, take a tour, learn the timeline and history. Give yourself about an hour, we thoroughly enjoyed our education here.
this is where 4 young, beautiful Black girls lives were stolen by KKK clansmen. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. described it as "one of the most vicious and tragic crimes ever perpetrated against humanity.” this is history that needs to be told!
