Sr. Maxine Kollasch speaks with Sr. Patricia Flass of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Sister Pat's congregation has served the area of Selma, Alabama, since 1941. In this clip, Sister Pat discusses the sisters' historical interactions with Rep. John Lewis and Martin Luther King Jr. Over the years, many sisters have served as hospital nurses in Selma. Sisters in hospital ministry helped Lewis after he was beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge during the march on March 7, 1965.
