Selma to Montgomery, 1965

In March 1965, the Reverend Dana McLean Greeley (third from left), Unitarian Universalist Association President, joined other American religious leaders in civil rights marches in Montgomery, Birmingham, and Selma, Alabama.

The marches, prompted by Martin Luther King, Jr., protested violence against African American and other civil rights activists in Selma.

Days before this photograph was taken, an attack on three Unitarian Universalist ministers in Selma left one of them, James Reeb, dead.
