Searching For Addie Mae Collins

students.cis.uab.edu

As Birmingham prepares to remember the four little girls killed nearly 50 years ago in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing one woman is searching for answers. Liesa Healy-Miller is a forensic genealogist who is making a final plea for clues to where the final resting place is of one of the victims, Addie Mae Collins.

Collins was buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Birmingham (also known as Woodlawn) but after being abandoned by the owners decades ago no records remain as to where Collins' grave site is. Alabama Public Radio's Ryan Vasquez spoke with Healy-Miller about her two year search and why this may be her last good chance to find Collins.

Ryan Vasquez is a reporter and the former APR host of All Things Considered.
