Stories From Selma
 

When we heard CCA would be closing their doors this spring, we were both saddened and shocked. News of the closing was broadcasted by the LCMS Synod only once the decision was final.

The announcement also made us realize how little we knew in general about the school: Who attended here? What happened at CCA during the historic voter right’s movement of the 1960s? How did those at the school feel about the school closing? We decided to pay a visit to Selma ourselves to hear stories and ask questions.

What we found was both encouraging and disappointing, and we were left with more questions than answers.

Our Goal

Our goal for this project is to share the stories we heard in hopes of bringing the rich history of this significant college to light. We also hope to initiate productive conversations about the importance of diversity for the future of our church body.

While we wish we would have had more time and resources to speak with more people connected to CCA, please note we were not able to capture all opinions and all stories during our brief time on campus. However, we are hopeful the stories and videos on this website display an accurate reflection of the stories we did hear.

If you are connected to CCA in anyway and would like to share a story about how the school has impacted you, please visit our Share Your Story page.
