Remembering Selma Event – March 3

The events on the Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama on “Bloody Sunday,” March 7, 1965, were pivotal in the Civil Rights movement and in our nation’s history, galvanizing public opinion and mobilizing Congress to pass the Voting Rights Act. Join us to commemorate the 59th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” with a community march, car rally, panel discussion and potluck lunch.  

We will meet at 100 Granite St, Manchester at 2:30 pm on March 3rd.   Please Park in the UNH parking lot on the corner.  We will gather, have a short introduction and prayer by Pastor Renee Rouse and march across the Granite Street Bridge and back.

We’ll then proceed with a car rally to the Valley St. jail and from there we will head to NEP House of Praise, 245 Maple Street in Manchester to enjoy lunch and hear stories from members of our community who will share their reflections on the past, present and future impacts of the march in Selma and the fight to preserve every citizen’s right to vote. Join the discussion to learn more about our history, and ways you can support current efforts to sustain and expand the gains of the Civil Rights era and ensure that voting remains inclusive and accessible to all NH citizens.
