An Afternoon with Civil Rights Activist Ruby Sales

Hamilton Hall,

The Committee for Diversity and Reconciliation at The School of Theology presents an afternoon with civil rights activist Ruby Sales. Sales is best known for her courage and conviction, when, at the age of 16, she participated in the civil rights movement. Having just been released from the town jail with seminarian Jonathan Daniels in Haynesville, Ala., they were confronted by the murderer who sought her life, and subsequently took Jonathan's. Working with her non-profit organization, Spirit House, Sales has continued the fight for social justice, and she will be in Sewanee to tell about how to take part in that continuing fight.

Refreshments will be served prior to Sales' presntation at 4 p.m. All are invited to attend. This event is sponsored by the Committee for Diversity and Reconciliation at The School of Theology.
