Our Undeniable History

On September 16, 1963, the day after the horrific bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, attorney Charles Morgan, Jr., a YMBC member, stood before the members of YMBC and delivered a powerful speech in which he indicted all present for being silent against racism, making them as guilty as the hateful people who threw the bomb into the church, killing four innocent, young, black girls and maiming many others. Charles Morgan’s words still ring true in 2020, as Black lives are repeatedly taken, violently and unjustifiably, in America.

Taking a Stand Against Racism

In June 2020, in the wake of civil unrest and the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and many others, several members of the YMBC, a long-standing civic group in Birmingham, AL, realized that it was time, yet again, take a stand against racism.
 
The Morgan Project, and its fundraising arm The Morgan Fund, was founded to provide active and meaningful programs that work to eradicate systemic racism, develop a place for citizens to discuss the effects of racism on society, and champion for equal justice for all.
