      McNair, Carol Robertson and Cynthia Wesley - are killed
      in a bombing at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in

      galvanizes the civil rights movement.

      1964 September 15- Rev. K.L. Buford and Dr. Stanley Smith are elected to the
      Tuskegee City Council and become the first African
      American elected officials in Alabama in the twentieth century.
