“Remember 4 Little Girls: A Gallery of Creative Expressions” Exhibit
July 13, 2016 @ 10:00 am - September 24, 2016 @ 4:00 pm
We are honored and excited to announce the Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum will host an exhibit from the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute from June 28th to September 24th! The exhibition is composed of winning entries in a nationwide high school creative expression contest based on Spike Lee’s Oscar (R) nominated documentary about the 1963 Birmingham, Alabama church bombing that took the lives of four young girls. In 1998, Home Box Office (HBO) announced winners of its nationwide high school creative expression contest. Winners, chosen on the basis of originality, style and content, were selected in four categories–art, audio/video, essay and poetry. Four grand-prize winners were selected from among 4,125 entries. The four winners each received a college scholarship and were honored during an awards ceremony at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. During the ceremony, HBO presented BCRI with this collection of the top entries.
