This event will be held online.
We are proud to co-sponsor a documentary and discussion event called “A Bloody Sunday in Selma,” on Sunday, March 7th at 7 p.m. EST via Zoom. The event is free and will feature a 30-minute documentary entitled Selma, A March to Remember on a pivotal event in the fight for the right to vote.
The documentary will be followed by a discussion of the movie, with remembrances from Peter Kellman, an activist who organized support for the Selma to Mongomery marches, former NH State Senator Melanie Levesque, and other speakers. Ed Taylor, of ACLU-NH and an Open Democracy board member, will moderate.
The event will not just look back at Selma, but also discuss the very real attacks on voting rights still happening today in New Hampshire and the U.S., and what actions you can take to do something about it.
The event is hosted by Open Democracy, a NH nonpartisan group which works on voting rights, money in politics and other pro-voter issues and co-sponsored by ACLU-NH; NH Peace Action; NAACP-Manchester, NH; UU Action NH; Concord NH Showing Up For Racial Justice; NH Council of Churches and MLK Coalition.
Please RSVP for the event, and a Zoom link and reminders will be sent to you by email. For questions about the event or technical issues, please contact Doreen at Open Democracy.
We hope to see you there for this important conversation about our history – and our future.
