Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

A special ceremony was held Sunday morning, outside of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, to remember the tragedy that happened there 50 years ago.

The church bell tolled each time for each of the 4 little girls killed in the explosion, which happened September 15, 1963.

The blast happened at 10:22am CT, and that's when Sunday's bell tolled.

After the bell ceremony, all attendees gathered and prayed outside the church.
