NPR – In a new memoir, entitled, Dear Denise: Letters to the Sister I Never Knew, McNair recounts growing up in a newly-integrated Birmingham after the notorious bombing that killed her sister. “The sermon that was going to be that day was ‘A Love That Forgives,’ ” McNair says. “The sermon that the minister never got to give.” McNair points to where Klansmen planted dynamite under a stairwell before Youth Sunday. She says the girls were freshening up between Sunday School and the worship service when the bomb detonated. “They had just come out of the ladies’ lounge and were standing near this window.”
