Selma Anniversary

Mar 3, 2015

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the voting rights marches of Selma, Alabama. We examine this crucial period of the Civil Rights Movement with Charles Blackburn, a retired minister and former organizer for the ACLU, and Unitarian Universalist minister Mark Morrison-Reed, whose book, "The Selma Awakening," examines the interracial and interfaith nature of the marches.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King lead a march in Selma, Alabama.
