Sunday March 8 marks the 50th anniversary of the march in Selma, Alabama for racial equality.
In Flint, on March 8, there will be a solidarity march to commemorate this momentous event.
“Selma” was 50 years ago and yet we know that the work of justice is not yet done.
On March 8th we, the people of the Greater Flint area, will gather at 1:30 at the foot of the Saginaw Street Bridge, march up Saginaw Street at 2, arrive at the Genesee County Courthouse, and be inspired by the words of the Rev Dr Kim Yarber. We will march to commemorate the Selma struggle; we will march to claim our solidarity in the fight for justice. For accountability. For voting rights. For water rights. For violence reduction. For jobs. For better educational opportunities. For hope.
We will come out of our silos and proclaim:
Unite for what’s right!
We urge congregations and groups to carry banners and placards, sing with gusto and march with hope.
