Jon Daniels 2019.Tom Roy Selfie & Crowd

Episcopalians and others from around the U.S. gathered in Haynesville, Alabama yesterday to march in memory of seminarian Jonathan Daniels and other civil rights martyrs; Jonathan was murdered there and a Roman Catholic priest was almost killed alongside him in 1965 for helping register black Americans to vote. Our Deacon Tom Roy got in front so he could take this selfie. No one from the town ever shows up, but black residents are known to run errands around that time just to keep an eye on things.
