Great AP story

Follow this link for a good read. (And yes, it speaks of god with respect. I don't mind such things. The story is much more than that.) Here's a snippet:
Seeking inspiration for a musical commission to mark the 50th anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, composer Yotam Haber turned to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute's Oral History Project. Combing through the files in the Alabama city, he came across a 1998 interview with Henrietta Tripp. 
And it goes on from there, bringing the past struggle for civil rights to life. Seriously, I loved this article and I cannot wait to hear the musical composition. It sounds transcendent. (Yes, we atheists use words like that, too. Surprise!)
