Cynthia Wesley

Cornelius Fredericks was just a 16 years old boy, his mother died when she was 32,
his father was improsined. And on top of all that, he got seperated from his siblings at the age of 12.

In 2020, he just threw a sandwich at someone in a restaurant, that prompted two men staff and a female nurse
to throw him on the ground and lie on his torso.

He was in that position for 12 minutes, the boy can be heard in videos saying “I can’t breathe”.

Once he stopped breathing, the staff tried to revive him for a couple of minuts.

He died in the hospital few days later.

Cynthia Wesley was a 14 years old girl that lived in Birmingham, Alabama.

She and her friends used to take part in the Sunday morning’s sermon in the 16th Street Baptist Church,
a known church for civil rights activists such as Martin Luther King Jr.

On September 15, 1963, members of the Ku Klux Klan perpetrated a terrorist attack in that church,
by placing dynamite sticks under the church’s stairwell.

At 10:22am, the bomb exploded.
Cynthia and 3 of her friends were killed. More than 20 people were injured.

None were prosecuted until 1977 through 2002,
because an FBI Director named J. Edgar Hoover did not believe that an all-white jury would convict them.

Birmingham became known as “Bombingham.”
