Speaker Series | Listen & Learn – Dale Long (1963 Birmingham Bombing)

Join Project Unity as we host a 3-month speaker series entitled “Listening & Learning”. This virtual event is a next step and action item opportunity of our Together We Dine and Together We Can programs. The speaker series runs from September through November and will feature stories of individuals and authors alike who will share stories about their journey and examine the journeys of key figures in our history. Be a part of this special one hour to listen and learn as we all work to continue our individual journeys around race, race relations, having courageous conversations and walking in someone else’s shoes.

October Speaker: Mr. Dale Long, one of few remaining survivors of the 1963 bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church where four of his friends were tragically killed and twenty-seven people were injured. Dale and his late brother escaped unscathed. Take an hour to “walk in his shoes” as he shares his story of that painful day in history.
