Autorenporträt
Francis X. Walter is a retired Episcopal priest from Mobile, Alabama. Walter's dismissal as rector of an Alabama church after helping to establish an Episcopal group advancing cultural and racial unity led to his founding the Selma Inter-religious Project (SIP) shortly after the historic Selma March of 1965. He began working as one white man's voice of conscience but later transformed SIP into a multi-pronged organization whose lawyers, organizers, and experts fought for civil rights and racial justice, advanced community development, and enabled the advocacy for poor people in the heart of Dixie.
