WHILE THE WORLD WATCHED A Birmingham Bombing Survivor Comes of Age During the Civil Rights Movement

by | Read by Felicia Bullock

Biography & Memoir • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

On September 15, 1963, a bomb exploded in the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. Felicia Bullock narrates with a gentle, subtle voice that complements the text and captures the emotions involved in the author’s account. She was 14 years old at the time and had just left the church’s bathroom. Four little girls were killed. She survived, and the Civil Rights movement was propelled forward. Bullock focuses on every word and pauses effectively to allow listeners to contemplate the author’s experience. She does, however, read just a bit too slowly, dragging out sentences and leaving too much space in her narration. This makes what should be a more spirited book languish. R.I.G.
