N.A.H. Blog Post Included Among Resources for Commemorating Selma Sunday

The note “More Resources for Teaching About #Ferguson” was included in the list “Resources for Commemorating Selma Sunday 2015” on the Unitarian Universalist Association’s website.

1965. Marion, Alabama. Civil Rights protester Jimmie Lee Jackson is shot and fatally wounded by Alabama State Trooper James Bonard Fowler. This event inspired the Selma-to-Montgomery March across the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

Today, the struggle for voting rights is needed more than ever. Opposition to police brutality is in full swing through rallies, vigils, and die-ins. The discussion of how black lives matter is a fight for justice for all that continues every day.  

2015. Selma, Alabama. On March 8, Unitarian Universalists will join the people of Selma on the Edmund Pettus Bridge to commemorate of the 50th anniversary of the bridge crossing in 1965. 

Those who will not be in Selma have an important opportunity to join the movement by celebrating Selma Sunday in their communities. Here are some resources to help.”
