A Dutch composer is paying tribute to unsung heroes of the Civil Rights Movement.

“A More Convenient Season” marks the 50th anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing that killed four little black girls.

The composition includes words from Martin Luther King Jr. and another Civil Rights Leader. It also includes the words of ordinary people, recounting the 1960’s.

The work premiered at the University of Alabama in Birmingham this weekend.
