Selma: The Struggle For Voting Rights and Racial Justice
Come join the Racial Justice Ministry for a showing of the Oscar-nominated film, Selma, on Friday, June 25, at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. This film depicts a milestone in the long struggle in our nation for voting rights and racial justice, the dramatic march to Selma and other events leading to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. It also provides essential context for the recent upsurge in attacks on voting rights in a large number of states. For anyone interested, we will have a follow-on discussion of the film on Sunday, June 27, at 7 p.m. via Zoom, and we plan to have a speaker presentation later this summer on the current state of play in this threat to our democracy. To register for the film and/or discussion, email firstname.lastname@example.org by June 24.
