Thomas Wilder Jr. of Bethel Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, shares how his church is working to help survivors of the civil rights movement who still experience trauma from their experiences. The church, once led by Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, who faced multiple bombings, recently hosted a conference focused on healing. Birmingham played a significant role in the civil rights movement, and the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church, which killed four little girls, was one of many tragic events. The church’s efforts to support survivors aim to provide solace and aid in their healing process.
