The Selma Event is a part of our Holy Listening Activities. In an effort to foster multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-culture connections, this mixed group gather to watch the movie “Selma,” eat a light meal and share table talk about a scripture passage, the movie, where we see God, and where we go from here.
The movie “Selma” is based on the 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights marches led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The event allows individuals from different backgrounds to engage in meaningful dialogue from a Christian perspective to improve race relations for all people.
