This film documents the role of Catholic Women Religious in the famed Selma March of 1965. The film claims that “never before in American history had vowed Catholic women made so public a political statement.” The film will be followed by an open discussion including commentary on the role of the Religious of the Sacred Heart. 

Event sponsored by the Frances G. Harpst Center for Catholic Thought and Culture and the Center for Christian Spirituality.
