Rabbi Alvin Fine, Chairman William Chester, United States attorney Cecil Poole, and Leonard Farmer talk to the huge crowd filling the streets in front of the Post Office building about the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama which resulted in the deaths of four young girls (hate crimes, civil rights). A young woman holds a sign saying "We mourn for the child victims of Birmingham mobs and police" (social protests, race relations). [Only selected images have been digitized.]
