A quick search of #SelmaforStudents on twitter or Facebook reveals the popularity of the effort.   But why fund tickets to see Selma? Selma tells one story and many stories.

I compiled the readings and reflections as a Unitarian Universalist (UU) young adult myself, and it includes words from UUs and non-UUs of the past and present, including personal reflections from other…
