During the turbulent 1960s in Birmingham, Alabama, civil rights attorney Arthur Shores and his family came under repeated attacks by the KKK. Now for the first time, in The Gentle Giant of Dynamite Hill, Shores' daughters tell their story of a man determined to fight on because of his passion and belief in a God who sees all men as equal.


These are the firsthand accounts of sisters Helen and Barbara Shores growing up with their father, Arthur Shores, a prominent Civil Rights attorney, during the 60s in the Jim Crow south Birmingham district?a frequent target of the Ku Klux Klan. Between 1948 and 1963, some 50 unsolved Klan bombings happened in Smithfield where the Shores family lived, earning their neighborhood the nickname ?Dynamite Hill.?


Due to his work, Shores? daughter, Barbara, barely survived a kidnapping attempt. Twice, in 1963, Klan members bombed their home, sending Theodora to the hospital with a brain concussion and killing Tasso, the family's cocker spaniel. The family narrowly escaped a third bombing attempt on their home in the spring of 1965.


The Gentle Giant of Dynamite Hill is an incredible story of a family's unfair suffering, but also of the Shores? overcoming. This family's sacrificial commitment, courage, determination, and triumph inspire us today through this story and the selfless service, work, and lives of Helen Shores Lee and Barbara Sylvia Shores.
