Grace on Stage

Saint Petersburg -

This play by David F. Smith is the fictionalized account of the story of Libby Cobbs. She testified against her Klansman uncle after the bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. Her testimony helped to secure the first murder conviction of a white man for the murder of a black person in the state of Alabama.
