In March 1965, Rosemary Flanigan was among a group of Catholic nuns who traveled to Selma, Alabama to advocate for civil rights. The trip came shortly after "Bloody Sunday" on March 7, 1965, when 600 civil rights marchers were attacked by state and local police with billy clubs and tear gas.
Sister Rosemary shared her experience and her thoughts during an event sponsored by the Center for Practical Bioethics on January 19, 2009. The next day, the first African American in US history was sworn in as President of the United States.
