Marching in the Arc of Justice

Greg Greenway

Greg Greenway will be our guest for this Sunday’s service. He will cover his experience at the Marching in the Arc of Justice Conference in Birmingham, Alabama, that took place in March, 2015. 500 UU’s attended the event as part of the 50th anniversary commemoration of the Selma Voting Rights action – the crossing of the Edmund Pettus Bridge and subsequent march to Montgomery. Two UU’s, James Reeb and Viola Liuzzo, lost their lives there in 1965, defining our commitment to social justice then and challenging UUs today to carry our principles beyond the walls of our churches. In addition to discussing his experience in Birmingham, Greg will perform some of his music. Many of his songs include race and love as common theme.
