Survivor of KKK Baptist Church bombing: “I had to forgive”

(CBS News) BIRMINGHAM, Ala.- A turning point in the Civil Rights movement came 50 years ago when members of the Ku Klux Klan bombed a black church in Birmingham, Alabama.

Four young girls were killed.

And nationwide outrage led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act one year later.

Today, President Obama signed a law to honor the victims— Denise McNair, Addie Mae Collins, Cynthia Wesley and Carol Robertson with the congressional gold medal.
