Activist and civil rights icon Ruby Sales spoke at St. Matthew’s on March 26, 2017. In the course of her lecture, she recalled the tragic events of August 20, 1965 in Hayneville, Alabama when a enraged racist aimed a shotgun at her and pulled the trigger. She told how she was saved at the last moment by a seminary student, Jonathan Daniels, who pushed her to ground, shielded her body and died in the process from the shotgun blast.
