WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 10: Filmmaker Spike Lee poses for a photograph next to a large reproduction of the Congressional Gold Medal that was posthumously awarded to the four young girls who were killed in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing at the U.S. Captiol September 10, 2013 in Washington, DC. Denise McNair, Addie Mae Collins, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley were killed September 15, 1963 when members of the Ku Klux Klan bombed the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. The medal honors the girls' sacrifice and how it served as a catalyst for the Civil Rights Movement. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) less
