While serving as United States Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama from 1997-2001, Senator Jones successfully prosecuted two former Ku Klux Klansmen responsible for the bombing that killed four young girls. Using videos, photographs and an audio undercover tape recording, Senator Jones will provide a history of the bombing and an insiders account of the investigation and trials that finally brought full justice and healing nearly 40 years after the attack.
