At The River: Struggle and Grace in the Segregated South
April 3 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
MPPC Bridge Builders is hosting a showing of the documentary, “At the River: Struggle and Grace in the Segregated South,” by filmmakers Carolyn Crowder and Rod Murphy on Sunday, April 3 at 5 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.
Come hear Presbyterian ministers, now in their 80’s and 90’s, share the opposition they faced from their congregations and the dangers they encountered in the community when they decided to take a stand in the segregated South to support the Civil Rights movement in the 1960’s. A brief preview of this film may be viewed at Carolyncrowder.com.
The 90 minute film will be shown followed by 30 minutes of moderated discussion. Snacks will be provided. For more information, contact Coleman Legerton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
