Selma Anniversary


This year marks the 50th anniversary of the voting rights marches of Selma, Alabama. We examine this crucial period of the Civil Rights Movement with Charles Blackburn, a retired minister and former organizer for the ACLU, and Unitarian Universalist minister Mark Morrison-Reed, whose book, "The Selma Awakening," examines the interracial and interfaith nature of the marches.

Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
