The Groton Interfaith Council Presents:
Sat, March 7
The Groton Center
163 W. Main St
The Groton Interfaith Council Film Screening Series intends to share noteworthy films and discuss diverse faith traditions in order to foster understanding, respect, justice, and peace in our community.
Our inaugural film will be Selma, shown in honor of Dr. Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., on Saturday, March 7th, the day that the marches from Selma to Montgomery began. The marches from Selma were organized by nonviolent activists to demonstrate the desire of African-American citizens to exercise their constitutional right to vote. By highlighting racial injustice, they contributed to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, a landmark federal achievement of the civil rights movement.
The screening is free of charge and will take place at the Groton Center on 164 W. Main St (formerly known as the Groton Senior Center). Light snacks and delicious desserts will be served.
