Voting Rights Act Anniversary Ceremony

Sat. 6 Aug, 2016 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Selma, AL, July 28, 2016: The National Voting Rights Museum and the Bridge Crossing Jubilee announce events to commemorate the 51st Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act.

On August 6, 1965, President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act 6 months after the historic Bloody Sunday and Selma to Montgomery March. The Act removed many barriers that allowed the election of hundreds of African American public offices. In 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court gutted the heart of the act, the preclearance provisions. Since that time, voting barriers have been resurrected. However, the fight to secure voting rights continue. Therefore, the public is urged to attend a reception and special ceremony to honor the students from area schools who help give birth to the Voting Rights Act. The Ceremony of Appreciation will take place at the Bridge House Theater located at

9 U.S. Highway 80, Selma, Alabama on Saturday, August 6th, at 2:00 p.m. The Museum will be open to the public free of charge from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Citizens who participated in the movement are urged to contact Mae Richardson or Sam Walker at the National Voting Rights Museum at (334) 418-0800.

Lowndes Interpretive Center Anniversary

Sat. 20 Aug, 2016 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail invites you to join us for our NPS Centennial and Lowndes Interpretive Center Anniversary, August 20th 2016 at 12:00 pm to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Lowndes Interpretive Center and 100 yr. birthday of the National Park Service.

This day will also be used to celebrate the contributions of 3 individuals of the Lowndes County communities, including John Hulett, the first elected African American Sheriff of Lowndes County, and later served as probate judge for 22 years. Willie Vaughner served 13 years as the second African American Sheriff in Lowndes County, and in 2004 was elected to serve as president of the Alabama’s Sheriff’s Association by his colleagues. Matthew Jackson was an African American who sold his land to be used as temporary housing for evicted Sharecropper and Tenant Farmer families in Lowndes County, and loaned his family home to SNCC in the 1960’s to be used as a Freedom House.

Visitors who participated or were affected by the Voting Rights Movement or The Modern Civil Rights Movement are encouraged to share their stories via oral history interviews at the programs conclusion.

The event will be held at the Lowndes Interpretive Center in White Hall, AL. There will be refreshments provided to celebrate the event, 1:00 – 4

Plan to Plan T.A.G.S. a Public Servant

Mon. 29 Aug, 2016 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Concordia College Alabama Honors Program will be hosting a series of events to show appreciation for Selma/Dallas County public servants. 

The CCA Honors Program students have created this initiative to help build bridges and promote better relations between the community and those working in public service occupations (i.e. firefighters, sheriffs, judges, police offers, military officials, elected officials, etc.). Each Monday during the fall 2016 semester, the Honors Program will invite a public servant to speak and answer questions so that the community may have a better understanding and appreciation for the work that they do. The acronym T.A.G.S. stands for Teamwork, Appreciation, Growth, and Synergy, all of which CCA hopes to promote through this series.

To show further appreciation, the Honors Program will “TAG” a public servant’s break room/lounge at work with doughnuts, coffee, orange juice and fruit as a token of appreciation for service to the community.  In addition, a Concordia College Alabama T.A.G.S. gift bag will be given to the public servant.

The events will be held every Monday in CCA’s Wright auditorium from 12:00-1:00 p.m. The entire Selma/Dallas County community is invited and encouraged to attend. The events are free and lunch will be served.
