Colia Clark to receive " Flame of Freedom Award" and Induction into the Civil Rights Hall of Fame
Colia Clark will be among those being honored with the "Flame of Freedom Award" and induction into the Civil Rights Hall of Fame when she returns to Selma, Alabama  on March 3-7, 2011 the annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee

This year’s Jubilee is “Celebrating Our Youth and the Spirit of SNCC.” The Jubilee commemorates Bloody Sunday, the day that Alabama State Troupers attacked peaceful marchers for the right to vote on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and celebrates the Voting Rights Movement and passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.  Colia and her husband Bernard travelled to Alabama to build the SNCC Black Belt Alabama Voter Education Project in 1963 after leaving  Mississippi. 

Other Freedom Flame nominees include Dorothy Dewberry Aldridge, Marion Barry, Margaret Brock, John Doar, Lawrence Guyot, Frank Holloway, Johnny Jackson, Bob and Janet Moses, Silas Norman and Ruby Sales.  Youth nominees include John Legend and Wyclef John.  

The Jubilee falls on the first week of  March each year.  This year it will be held March 3-7, 2011 with over 30 events throughout the week.  The Alabama Tourism Department deems the Jubilee as one of the top ten Alabama events with thirty to forty thousand people from across the Country converging on Selma each year.

TODAY: 50th Anniversary Lumumba Commemoration

Friends of Congo (FOTC) and its supporters will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Congo's first elected Prime Minister, Patrice Emery Lumumba by showing films and holding discussions on his life and ideas.

FOTC will also join in solidarity with the family of Patrice Lumumba in calling for justice for the people of Congo. We appeal to all justice seeking people throughout the globe to join in this worldwide call in support of the Congolese people's quest for justice.

In the United States the anniversary falls on Monday, January 17, 2011, the same day as the official celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday. Dr. King famously said, "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." We appeal to the disciples of Dr. King to join us in calling for justice in the Congo.
