President Obama has designated five new national monuments, including a civil rights district in Birmingham, Alabama centered on the 16th Street Baptist Church, bombed by Ku Klux Klansmen in 1963, which killed 4 girls in Sunday school and maimed others. This was supposed to “warn off” Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and other justice leaders, but what it did was make the rest of America hate the Klan and all it stood for. (Associated Press)
