In 2013, UAB historian Pamela Sterne King and Temple Beth El congregant Solomon P. Kimerling teamed up to author a 17-part series entitled “No More Bull” for Weld. An 18th part by Mark Kelly (then-publisher of Weld) reflected back on the series. 2013 was the fiftieth anniversary of a number of key events within Birmingham’s long civil rights movement, and this series is an excellent commemoration of that history.
Sol Kimerling (z”l) passed away in 2022. Sol was not only co-author of this series, but a true community historian, and an important supporter of the Beth El Civil Rights Experience. He was active in the Birmingham community in so many ways. You can read more about his legacy, with his wife, Rita Kimerling (z”l) here, in this excellent tribute from University of Alabama-Birmingham.
We are thrilled to provide continuing access to “No More Bull!”
