'The Selma March: Now and Then' discussion

 Middletown  See map

Rev. Gil Caldwell, retired United Methodist minister and Rev. John Licitra, Universalist Christian minister will discuss the importance of the 1965 Selma march. 


Rev. Caldwell joined Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King and thousands of other Civil Rights marchers to register voters in March, 1965, in Selma, Alabama. 


In 2012, John Licitra, then a ministerial student, went to Alabama in his “Sanofka Journey,” following  in the footsteps of the original march.  “Sanofka” is of African origin, meaning “looking back in order to look forward.”


 


What was it like to revisit this place of violence and hope, almost 50 years later? What was it like to be there in 1965?  


And where are we now in living up to the ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for ‘beloved community?”


All are welcome to this event, free of charge
