BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Joe Biden visited a historic black church in Alabama on Sunday, the 56th anniversary of its bombing by the Ku Klux Klan.

The Democratic presidential candidate said the country hasn't "relegated racism and white supremacy to the pages of history" as he framed current tensions in the context of the civil right movement's struggle for equality.

Biden spoke to parishioners at the 16th Street Baptist Church in downtown Birmingham.
