"The Distance to Downtown"

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

Today, we pause and remember a moment in the Civil Rights Movement that pierced the hearts of many --- the bombing at 16th Street Baptist Church.

Four little girls were killed.

It's said that the bomb was built under a Shelby County bridge.

Digital Journalist Kalisha Whitman went to that bridge.

She captured spoken word artist Bstuc's view through his poem titled "The Distance to Downtown."
