Time Out says

In 1963, the KKK bombed the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, killing four young black girls. To commemorate the event and pay tribute to the lives lost, Bey displays a series of side-by-side contemporary portraits, one of a child the same age as the slain children, the other of an adult the same age as the victims would have been in 2013.
