The event took place at noon at ASU's Zelia Stephens Early Childhood Center auditorium on the corner of Robert Hatch Drive and Tuscaloosa Street.
The bombing occurred on September 15, 1963 two weeks after Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech.
A bomb set by members of the Klu Klux Klan exploded as 26 children were walking into a basement assembly at the church. Addie Mae Collins, Denise McNair, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley were killed. Twenty-two others were injured.
