Knowing Joy, Justice & Peace: Experiencing Pete Seeger

This service is based on Clark's personal experience with Pete Seeger's person and music, beginning as a college student 63 years ago. Congregational singing, solos by Pete and reflections from Clark Olsen about important moments in Clark's life when Pete's music has been particularly inspiring.

Speaker: Clark Olsen

Clark has served as a Unitarian Universalist minister since 1957 in Westboro, MA; Berkeley, CA; Morristown, JG and as UUA Vice-President for Program and Planning. In 2015 he was honored at the UU General Assembly and received the UUA's Distinguished Service Award. Since 1989 he has lived in Asheville with his wife Anna who has served on the UUA Board of Trustees representing the Southeast District. Clark has also been honored for his part in the 1965 Voting Rights March in Selma, when an attack on Clark, Orlof Miller and James Reeb led to Reeb's death, which in turn was a "tipping point" in the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
