2022 Keynote Speaker: “The Voice of Selma,”
We are very honored to announce our Keynote Speaker will be Bettie Mae Fikes. In 1963 she protested during the voting rights struggle in Selma. Her powerful singing voice inspired Blacks in Selma to fight for equality. Bettie has been dubbed as “the voice of Selma,” and is a celebrated icon of the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement.
