On Sunday, June 14 at noon, we will have a Q&A with Amelia Boynton Robinson facilitated by Spiritual Leader Xavier Eikerenkoetter.

Join us at 4140 Broadway or on our live stream here: http://unitedpalace.org/live-stream.


About Amelia Boynton Robinson:

Amelia Boynton Robinson led a march for voting rights in Selma on March 7, 1965. Amelia was beaten and tear-gassed by police and left for dead as the 600-strong marchers approached the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma. The attack on demonstrators, known as “Bloody Sunday,” shocked the nation and changed the course of history. It resulted in the Selma to Montgomery march led by Dr. Martin Luther King and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Amelia is a cousin of Rev. Ike and Xavier Eikerenkoetter. A committed advocate for justice, she was joined by President Obama in a march to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday this past March 2015. She wants young people to know the importance of "the struggle we faced to get to the point we are today."
