CBS42’s special, entitled “Hope and Honor: A Tribute to Four Girls” airs at 6:30 p.m. Friday, September 13.
The half-hour documentary is both a tribute to the four girls martyred in the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church but also a behind-the-scenes story of the efforts to remedy the lack of an official monument to the girls.
CBS42’s Sherri Jackson had exclusive access to sculptor Elzabeth MacQueen who shares both the making of the monument and the moving story behind it.
It’s powerful television that brings history to life and helps give the Four Girls the recognition they so rightly deserve.
“Hope and Honor: A Tribute to Four Girls” 6:30 p.m., Friday, September 13.
If you miss the special at its 6:30 p.m. airing on Friday, there will be two additional replays of the program.
It will air Saturday morning at 11:30 a.m. on CBS42 and Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m. on our digital station, CBS42.2.
