Please join us on the 50th year Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March of 1965. This was a 5 day March that was approximately 54 miles. We are honoring our ancestors with THE VOTERS MARCH (Across Philly)
I’m pleased to say I saw the movie “Selma” before it stopped showing in the area. Excellent movie on the importance of voting. No, voting is not the only tool in the activist’s toolchest and it sure would be nice to have better choices, but it’s certainly worth fighting for.
One of the things that familiarized me with the themes and characters in “Selma” was the book Parting The Waters, all about the early years of the Civil Rights Movement.
