Special Martin Luther King Jr. Sunday preahcer, Ruby Sales. 

Ruby Sales is a highly-trained, experienced, and deeply committed social activist, scholar, administrator, manager, public theologian, and educator in the areas of civil, gender, and other human rights.

In August 1965, Sales, along with other SNCC workers, joined young people from Fort Deposit, Alabama, who organized a demonstration to protest the actions of the local White grocery store owners who had cheated their parents. The group was arrested and held in jail and then suddenly released. Jonathan Daniels, a White seminarian and freedom worker from Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts was assassinated as he pulled Sales out of the line of fire, when they attempted to enter Cash Grocery Store to buy sodas for other freedom workers who were released from jail.

Sales has preached around the country on race, class, gender, and reconciliation, and she has done ground-breaking work on community and non-violence formation. She also serves as a national convener of the Every Church A Peace Church movement.
