Action in the Name of McCrackin
Activists often cling to Amos 5:24: "But let justice run down like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream." The late Rev. Maurice McCrackin used to say, "It is up to us to work out the irrigation system." In an effort to keep his legacy of activism alive, St. Joseph Catholic Church opens its doors June 11-13 for "Rev. Maurice McCrackin Unity Day: A Citywide Activist Organizing Conference." For more information, call the church at 513-381-4526.
