Today, I was so excited to be able to participate in the Selma to Montgomery march reliving a moment in history that has been such a huge part of the African American experience. I am even more grateful to be sharing this moment with so many people of all various backgrounds as we marched for worker and voter rights.
I was tweeting all day! I walked for eleven milesalongside ULTCW’s President, Laphonza Butler, Rev. Al Sharpton, SEIU President Mary Kay Henry and even, R&B singer Tyrese.
But I was most taken away by meeting 101 year old Dr. Amelia Boynton Robinson, a civil right hero who was beaten in the 1965 Selma march. What an inspiring lady!
It was very exciting and I feel honored to join my brothers and sisters in the fight for social and economic justice. Looking forward to the next few days!
