“Selma Sunday”

Guest Speaker Drew Glover, Worship Associates Karen Brown and Katie Hamilton

Fifty-five years ago this month, our minister Rev. Bob O’Brien, UU minister James Reeb, UU “housewife and mother” Viola Liuzzo and others answered Dr. King’s call to join him on Edmund Pettus Bridge for the civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery. Reeb and Liuzzo were killed there. This morning we will remember and be inspired by Selma 1965 with songs and words from the movement. Our guest speaker is Drew Glover, an activist and organizer with the Resource Center for Nonviolence and Cultural Exchange – Selma. He will explore the ethical, philosophical, and political power of nonviolence and the importance of intentional cultural exchange while connecting the past to our present.
