Rep. Terri Sewell

Rep. Terri Sewell of Alabama grew up in Selma and credits the civil rights movement for making her election to Congress possible. As the Representative for Birmingham, she reflects on the lasting impact of the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church, and honoring the victims. “They deserve to be acknowledged; and they deserve to have their proper place in history as true heroines of the movement.”
