We March On: The 50th Anniversary of the March on Selma
On this Sunday, people from around the country will join in a historic re-enactment of the march from Selma to Montgomery fifty years ago. Here at First Unitarian Church, we are honored to welcome activist, historian, educator and long-time member Dr. Timuel Black to our worship service. The road to justice has been long—and we have so much farther to go: we march on.
Following the service, we will be hosting a special panel discussion exploring restorative justice with Dr. Black and leaders in our community, facilitated by the Rev. Yvonne Gilmore, Associate Dean of the Disciples Divinity House.
