Here is a GROUP project that would not have been accomplished 50 years ago,
a Selma Unity Quilt that will be carried this Sunday, March 1
in the United in Faith Unity Walk.
The quilt was displayed Tuesday evening at Brown Chapel AME Church
(where civil rights rallies and meetings were often held in 1965)
during a meeting among ministers and lay people. The quilt
features 176 squares from churches, individuals and businesses in Selma.
In the bottom photo, Dr. Jerry W. Light of Selma's First Baptist Church
(Lauderdale Street) and Jwanda Maxwell of Brown Chapel AME Church,
lead the GROUP to
"Unite Selma, One Selma: Coming Home...United in Faith."
