I am writing to thank everyone who contributed to the Groton Interfaith Film Series at the Groton Center last Saturday. We intend to share noteworthy films on a bimonthly basis and discuss diverse faith traditions in order to foster understanding, respect, justice, and peace in our community.
Our first showing was “Selma” in honor of Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the marches he led from Selma to Montgomery 55 years ago this month in support of voting rights for African-American citizens, which culminated in the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
Thank you to all the members of the Groton Interfaith Council who organized and publicized the event, our volunteers who prepared delicious snacks, popcorn, and beverages, and to Kathy Shelp who made the Groton Center available for the showing and helped us to advertise it.
We are also grateful to almost 40 members of the Groton community who attended and stayed for a fruitful discussion afterward. Our next film screening will be in May, stay tuned for further details.
Vice-Chair, Groton Interfaith Council.
