Church women, c. 1920s

16th Street Baptist Church, Birmingham, Alabama. I visited the church about 10 years ago, on assignment for a magazine. This picture was for sale at the church, a souvenir of the church's long role in the community.

Yesterday was an historic anniversary, and today we celebrate International Women's Day. 

The 16th Street Baptist Church was the site of a horrific bombing in 1963 that took the lives of four girls.
