Cynthia Morris - NOT Cynthia Wesley - Issue Proclamation
This petition had 44 supporters
On September 15, 1963, my sister was decapitated in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing that shook the world's conscience. I have waited fifty years for the world's conscience to help deliver justice to acknowledge my sister's identity and end the disparity in compensation for hate-crime victims from the Civil Rights struggle
You may know my sister as Cynthia Dionne Wesley. That name is wrong! Her name is Cynthia Diane Morris. This fact is recognized by the State of Alabama via an Amended Death Certificate, yet lawmakers refuse to issue a proclamation; which would simultaneoulsy correct history and return my sister home. Despite what you may have read, Cynthia was never adopted. In fact, others have claimed a familial connection when none whatsoever existed! Others have elevated themselves by claiming my sister was their "close friend" - that is not the truth. Cynthia never knew some of those who have claimed to be her "best friend."
I NEED YOUR HELP; I NEED YOU TO SIGN THIS PETITION demanding a written proclamation by the Governor of Alabama; correctly identifying my sister, CYNTHIA D. MORRIS as one of the "Four Girls" who was slain on September 15, 1963 in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. By signing this petition, you will help me correct the annals of history and educate generations of students about my sister.
Thank you for your support.
