"This case was re-opened...there was new information that came to light ..."
Bobby Cherry and Thomas Blanton Jr. surrendered to authorities... after a grand jury indicted them on murder charges. Cherry and Blanton were among four Ku Klux Klansmen initially suspected of carrying out the blast ... at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church.
The explosion took the lives of 11-year old Denise McNair ... and 14-year olds Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robertson, and Addie Mae Collins.

Their deaths also sparked outrage among blacks and some whites -- already in the midst of fighting to end segregation.

The bombing just shattered that sense of hope and optimism and created indignation and it forced people black and white to say - enough is enough .
Since then, the bombing has been a -tough case to crack. In the 1970's, one suspect was convicted. He died while serving a life sentence.
