Dave dedicates song to Westboro Baptist Church in KC
For those of us who’s childhood included the 1960s, we noticed that the decade was ruled by bombs and bullets. For those who pushed the struggle for civil rights, they encountered opposition that was supported by bombs and bullets. And the military party that occurred in Vietnam was based upon the consumption of bombs and bullets. Birmingham, Alabama cost four lives in September, 1963. Only two months later, another four lives were lost in Dallas: Pres. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, Officer Tippit and Jack Ruby.

I have tried to research the history about this cemetery but have only discovered that it is the oldest African-American cemetery either in AL or in Birmingham. There isn’t much information available on-line. I have read good and bad about this cemetery. However when I visited in July of 2013, expecting the worst, the grass was cut and landscaping neat. It was clean and I didn’t see trash about. It appeared that the city is doing their best to maintain perpetual care. I’ve seen much worse.
What makes this cemetery special, is that there are three of the 16th Street Baptist Church murdered victims buried there. Without an office to ask for help, I was luck that after walking around for a while I was able to locate their graves.
It was thirty years before Addie’s sisters could bear to visit her grave, and when they saw its neglected state, they immediately arranged to have Addie Mae moved to another, better maintained cemetery. However, workers who opened the grave recoiled in shock: It was empty devoid of casket and corpse. No one can know with certainty who took the body or why.
