The 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing Victims Bronze Medal is a duplicate of the Congressional Gold Medal awarded posthumously on September 10, 2013 and pays tribute to the deaths of four young African-American girls – Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson and Cynthia Wesley – at the church located in downtown Birmingham, AL. Fifty years ago, the deaths of these young girls sparked “The Movement that Changed the World.” On that tragic Sunday, September 15, 1963, people around the world took notice of the violence that occurred with the struggle for civil rights. This bronze medal is available today!
