Sunday Morning at 9:00 AM in the Chapel

February 22
Geography, history, and politics collide in “Southern Trails to Social Justice: What Happened in Birmingham” at 9 a.m. in The Chapel. From April through September in 1963, the epic struggles of the Civil Rights Movement were centered in Birmingham, Alabama, otherwise known as “America’s Most Segregated City.” Out of violent Lenten protests and Good Friday arrests, Martin Luther King wrote his landmark “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” Five months later, four young girls were killed in the Sunday bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church. Join Allan Ruter for a multimedia consideration of what happened then and what it means now.
