Local Commemoration of Historic Selma March
Fifty years ago, members from diverse faith communities answered Dr. Martin Luther King’s call to show up in Selma, Alabama, and support black civil rights protestors who were putting their lives on the line for the right to vote. Please join us for a local march commemorating the Selma Marches of 1965, and the interfaith movement that supported them.
This is an important time to remember this major turning point in the U.S. Civil Rights struggle—and to underscore the Civil Rights work that still needs to be done.
Answer the call in 2015. Marchers will meet at the Minnesota State Capitol on Sunday, March 8, at 2pm. The march will cross the Cedar Street Bridge over I-94, recalling the Selma marchers who crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The march will end at Central Presbyterian, 500 Cedar Street, with a program to follow.
