Jack and Jill Members Celebrate the Legacy of Carole Robertson

Special to The Truth

On Saturday, September 28, members of the Jack and Jill Toledo chapter and their children gathered at Art Tatum Park to celebrate the legacy of Carole Robertson. Robertson, a member of the Birmingham Alabama chapter of Jack and Jill, was one of the four girls killed in the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church on September 15, 1963. Carole was 14 years old at the time of her death.

The other three victims of the white supremacists’ bombing were Addie Mae Collins and Cynthia Wesley, both 14, and Carol Denise McNair, 11. One of the perpetrators was found guilty of the crime in 1977, two others in 2004. A fourth member of the conspiracy died before he could be brought to justice.

This past weekend’s commemoration service consisted of a reading by the youth members of Jack and Jill along with the laying of a stone tablet in acknowledgement of the former Jack and Jill youth member.

Carole Robertson’s life and legacy are celebrated by each Jack and Jill chapter across the nation in September.
