Call in to speak with the host

The residential bombings in Birmingham, Alabama by the Ku Klux Klan is a disheartening history of the racial divide that threatened to rip the South apart. According to Judge Helen Shores Lee and her sister Barbara, The Civil Rights Era was a story of life and death, for they lived in a Smithfield(Dynamite Hill) known for some 50 unsolved bombings from 1948-1963.

In this harrowing account of courage under fire, two sisters poignantly describe how their father,Authur Shores, a prominent Civil Rights Attorney living in the Jim Crow South, and their family faced an internecine destiny!

Tune in to this moving episode about bravery and sacrifices.
