Don't Forget: 4 Little Girls in Birmingham #4LittleGirls [VID]

After all the attention we've paid recently to the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, I am especially aware of how, as a culture, we continually remind ourselves of past tragedy.

So, why is that some past tragedies get attention and some do not?

Today is the anniversary of the bombing of a Birmingham, Alabama church in which KKK members killed 4 young African-American girls.

When I browse around for news related to this terrorist tragedy I notice no or very little news coverage on Google News, Yahoo News or Bing News.

Even on Twitter there is little. About 24 tweets in the past 24 hours. There is a #4littlegirls hashtag, but little attention there too.

So, I'll put this post out there for us to remember.  Below is a brief overview from the History Channel.  Also below is Spike Lee's documentary.
