Sarah Collins Rudolph

Sarah Collins Rudolph is the sister of Addie Mae Collins, one of the four little girls killed in the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. Sarah’s eyes were seriously injured by the flying glass in the explosion; she lost her right eye and has only partial vision in her left eye. In her new book, The Fifth Little Girl: Soul Survivor of the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing, she recalls her family life before the bombing, the details of the bombing itself, and immediate aftermath, and the long-term effects on her family and her own life during the past decades.
