  • On Monday, January 21, 2019 we will march to honor of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Young people may wonder, “Why do they march?” Part of our mission is to help young people answer that question. We are happy to offer a showing of “Selma Lord Selma” a Walt Disney film based on true events that happened in March 1965, known as Bloody Sunday in Selma, Alabama. The film tells the story through the eyes of an 11-year-old African-American girl named Sheyann Webb. It was directed by Charles Burnett, one of the pioneers of black American independent cinema. It premiered as a television movie on ABC on January 17, 1999.
    We will have a brief introduction and watch the movie with drinks and popcorn. As part of our discussion after the movie, we will make our own signs to carry at our march on the following Monday. All supplies will be provided.
    Any person (adult or child) who watches the film and stays to make a sign, will receive a free MLK T-shirt and will hopefully participate in the march.
    For further information please email or call Susan Tate at 830-708-6065.
    If you plan to come, please send us an email or call so we can assure enough supplies and t-shirts. Thank you.
