Fifteen-year-old Carolyn Maull McKinstry was just a few feet away when the Klan-planted bomb that killed four of her friends exploded in the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. It was one of the seminal moments in the Civil Rights movement, a sad day in American history . . . and the turning point in a young girl’s life.
Carolyn’s story is a poignant and gripping eyewitness account of what it was like to grow up in the Jim Crow South–from the bombings, riots, and assassinations to the historic marches and triumphs that characterized the Civil Rights era.
A unique and moving exploration of how racial relations have evolved over the past five decades, While the World Watched is an incredible testament to how far we’ve come–and how far we have yet to go.
“Felicia Bullock narrates with a gentle, subtle voice that complements the text and captures the emotions involved in the author’s account.” – AudioFile Magazine
