Sephira Bailey Shuttlesworth shared stories of resolution from her childhood and the life of her late husband, Fred Shuttlesworth, in the segregated South at the fifth annual Black History Month program at Union University Feb. 13.
Sephira Shuttlesworth, a Union University alumna and Jackson, Tenn., resident, addressed nearly 200 black, white and Latino students, faculty, staff and other members of the Jackson community. The program, entitled “Black Leaders in American Culture and History,” was hosted by MOSAIC, an organization led by Union students dedicated to encouraging multi-cultural understanding on campus.
As African-Americans who peacefully confronted segregation in the South during the civil rights movement, the Shuttlesworths were sustained by a confidence that they were doing God’s will, she said.
