. . . . And now a little history. September 15, 1963, was the monthly youth service at Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. Children hurried to the church basement for Sunday School. A bomb planted by the Ku Klux Klan exploded, shook the church, shook the community, and shook the nation. Fourteen-year-olds, Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and eleven-year-old Cynthia Wesley were killed. The bombing at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama was an act of terrorism intended to slow the progress of the civil rights movement.

The Black Girls Dream Conference dates were chosen to pay homage to the memory of the four southern Black girls. We will amplify the voices and issues of Black girls and women to empower women to bring about economic, racial, and social justice in the South.
