      Chasity Barnes Scholarship Dinner ft. Sheyann Webb-Christburg

      We hope you'll join us for the annual Chasity D. Barnes Memorial Scholarship Dinner & Silent Auction featuring Sheyann Webb-Christburg on Saturday, May 4, 2019 in Dothan, Alabama. Sheyann Webb-Christburg was born in Selma, Alabama. She is a voice for justice, equality and self-achievement. She is the nationally known co-author of Selma, Lord, Selma: Girlhood Memories of the Civil Rights Days. Her book, which is now a Disney Movie, was nominated for Best Television Mini Series by the NAACP Image Awards in 2000. Ms. Webb-Christburg was named the “Smallest Freedom Fighter” by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. At age eight, Ms. Webb-Christburg would sneak out of her house to attend meetings. She was the youngest participant to take part in the historically first attempted Selma to Montgomery march known as “Bloody Sunday”. Read more about her here. WSFA 12 News Anchor Tonya Terry  will be the emcee for the night. We will also award the Chasity D. Barnes Scholarship to a deserving high school senior. And we have a special treat this year! The models from the WonderFULL World of Fashion will join us for an exciting and very entertaining show. Tickets are $30 and must be purchased in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door.
