U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones visited UAB Spencer Honors House Monday, Nov. 27, to share his experiences as the prosecutor of the KKK bombers of the 16th Street Baptist Church as well as to campaign for this platform.  

We are in the middle of a pretty exciting race,” Jones said. “I want to be able share all my Alabamian history with you all today.” 

Jones, from Fairfield, refers to himself as a product and lifelong resident of Alabama. Jones has served as U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama, prosecutor and a private defense attorney. Jones has been endorsed by former Vice President Joe Biden, Rep. John Lewis of Georgia and Rep. Terri Sewell. 

UAB College Democrat hosted the event to provide students an opportunity to hear more about Jones’ platform. 

“It’s not even a privilege, it’s a right,” said Renuka Srivastava, vice president of UAB College Democrats. “It’s something you do as an American citizen. Doug Jones is not someone who will exploit differences and try to create boundaries and barriers.” 

Jones shared his experiences and details of how the bomber of the 16th Street Baptist Church was found. According to Jones, the reason the FBI was able to catch the terrorist was because a UAB 18-year-old freshman followed one of the terrorists after he fled and was able to record his tag number off his vehicle in 1963.  

“My point is, youth can make a change,” Jones said. “You have the power to touch the lives of many and make a difference.”
