      become the pastor of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham,
      Alabama. As a leader in the community, he will also become a

      and operated by African Americans in the early 1900s. (Note:
      The Sixteenth Street Baptist Church is also known for the bombing during
      the Civil Rights movement, on September 15, 1963, that killed four
      little girls.)
