I was near the church in time for services, but I wasn't sure if I could have gone in for the service... I was told later that of course I could have gone in. I stood outside the church and I was just overcome with the power of it. I visited after walking the heritage trail about "Government" which told... 更多
I don't think I have been in a church since the last funeral I attended but my wife dragged me in and am I glad she did. The folk running it are so welcoming and the choir and solo singers are first rate but the highlight was the preacher who lived up to all the images of the firebrand. He... 更多
If visiting the Civil Rights Institute, take the time to cross the street and see the site of the infamous Klan firebomb, that killed four innocent girls. Very moving.
I felt I needed to see this famous church during my visit to Birmingham.

Be forewarned that the area can be intimidating. Upon emerging from our car, we were immediately met by panhandlers asking for money. Also,... 更多
We parked and walked across the street - to be met by a gentleman who asked if we knew the history, and proceeded to show us around and talk about the events of that fateful day in 1963, and what the neighborhood was like then, and the unforgivable events that followed. A stone marking the names of the four young... 更多
