Our fellow WiseUp members will talk about their experiences traveling on a bus from Evanston to Selma, Alabama for the Selma Civil Rights march in March of 1965. Hear how this was an outgrowth of their own personal activism, of the activism taking place in Evanston in the early ‘60’s, and how Evanstonians were organizing in ways that you will find interesting. You will also hear how a young African-American woman experienced Selma and its aftermath and how it changed her life and the life of the African-American community.

Thank heavens for the iPhone and iPad calendar app. In these days of lockdown, how else would I know what day it is? We all need clear and proper scheduling management more than ever. Your iPhone and iPad come with a default calendar app. Most of you know the calendar as a good time and date alerting tool, but it also integrates with other apps on your iOS device. It is among my favorite apps.
