“Solace at St. Jude”

Published 12:30 pm Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Now known for its caring community outreach, St. Jude, founded in 1934, was the final stop for marchers from Selma on March 24, 1965, before they headed to the capitol in Montgomery. According to the city’s website, St. Jude was an empowering space for the weary marchers in their time of need. Students are high-fived and greeted by an MLK teacher and join in singing a verse of “We Shall Overcome” with older students as they rest and learn briefly of St. Jude’s history during the March 20, 2015 reenactment march.
