Sojourn to the Past to host Sunday fundraiser


Sojourn to the Past will host a spaghetti dinner fundraiser from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Richard Brown United Methodist Church, 1205 Elm St. Cost is $7 for adults and $4 for children under 12, and guests can eat in or take out.

Sojourn to the Past is a seven-day trip to the civil-rights sites in the South starting March 25. Thirteen Youngstown high school students will meet icons of the movement in Little Rock, Ark.; Memphis, Tenn.; Jackson, Hattiesburg and Meridian, Miss.; and Selma and Birmingham, Ala., and develop an action plan to implement when they return to Youngstown.

Sojourn students of previous years developed a Nonviolence Week for the city schools, made the event an annual program in schools, the city and at Youngstown State University, witnessed Gov. John Kasich sign a Nonviolence Week in Ohio bill into law and created a nonviolence parade and rally.
