The Twin Cities observance of the 1965 Selma March will be held March 8th, 2-4 p.m., beginning at the State Capitol and ending at Central Presbyterian Church in downtown Saint Paul. Music by Larry Long, Tonia Hughes, andCameron Wright.
Led by a coalition of faith communities, we will come together from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, political preferences and across socio-economic differences. We will come together across all that could divide us to be unified in this moment in recognition of the interfaith march of 1965 from Selma to Montgomery, with hopes of inspiring continued partnerships. We join this march with others across the country, including those in Selma. We are stronger together in bringing justice to this broken and hurting world.
The Twin Cities observance of the 1965 Selma March will be held March 8th, 2-4 p.m., beginning at the State Capitol and ending at Central Presbyterian Church in downtown Saint Paul.
