Carolyn McKinstry

Carolyn McKinstry grew up in Birmingham during the 1950s and 1960s and has vivid memories of the 1963 Children’s Crusade and the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church. Her best friend, Cynthia Wesley, was one of the four little girls who were killed in the blast. She describes all of these memories in her book, While the World Watched: A Birmingham Bombing Survivor Comes of Age during the Civil Rights Movement.
