September 15th: Fifty one years have passed since a bomb stopped the old sanctuary clock in Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church, locking in a moment that would change a nation.

In a 1963 telegram, color barrier-breaking baseball legend Jackie Robinson urged to President John F. Kennedy “utilize every federal facility” to protect Martin Luther King Jr.
