I read with interest the coverage in the Saturday St Louis Post-Dispatch commemorating “Bloody Sunday” and the role St. Louisans played in the events in Selma, Alabama in 1965.
The Charles and Mary Vatterott family, Archbishop Joseph E Ritter and Sister Antona Ebo an African American nun, member of the Franciscans Sisters of St. Mary, were profiled in the coverage and one of them with ties to New Haven.
