Greater Boston Video: Birmingham Church Bombing: Meet The 'Fifth Girl' Who Survived
Just two and a half weeks after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech, the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham was bombed, injuring 22 and killing four little girls. Fifty years later, we're just beginning to learn about a "fifth girl" who made it out alive. WGBH News reporter Clennon King sat down with Sarah Collins Rudolph this morning to find out what brings her to Boston.

16th Street Baptist Church Bombing Survivor Advocates For Forgiveness
September 15th 1963. It was a Sunday morning. The time was 10:22 in the morning and 5 little girls were in the basement of the 16th Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. That was the time a racially motivated terrorist attack took the lives of 4 of those little girls, and injured more than 20 others. The explosion was felt throughout the city, and continues to be felt within Sarah Collins Rudolph, also known as the 5th little girl in the basement. She survived that morning. She spoke to me about what it was like to live through the attack then and now.
"The Fifth Little Girl": Birmingham Church Bombing Survivor Still Seeks Compensation 50 Years On
http://www.democracynow.org - Fifty years ago this week, four young girls — Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, Cynthia Wesley and Addie Mae Collins — were killed when the Ku Klux Klan bombed the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. The bombing came less than a month after the landmark March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Hundreds gathered in the nation's capital last week to honor their memory when lawmakers posthumously awarded the girls the Congressional Gold Medal. We're joined by Addie Mae's sister, Sarah Collins Rudolph, who is often referred to as the bombing's "fifth victim." Just 12 years old when the church was attacked, Collins Rudolph was hit with shards of glass, lost an eye and was hospitalized for months. Today, she continues to live in Birmingham, suffering from the physical, mental and emotional effects of the bombing. She says she has yet to receive any compensation.
