The current film Selma has generated quite a box-office buzz. But fifty years ago Selma was the Candlewickshop_May2014name of a racially-divided Alabama town at the heart of a civil rights campaign that stirred millions of people throughout the world. It culminated in the Voting Rights Act, changing forever the landscape of American democracy. This talk will explore that story and tell how Selma is still instructive for the racial dilemmas of post-Ferguson America.  Please call 248-658-3440 or stop by the Adult reference desk to register for this free program.
