Members Of Historically Black Church Turn Their Backs As Michael Bloomberg Speaks About 'Bloody Sunday'
March 1, 2020

Parishioners at a historically black church in Selma, Alabama protested Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg as his spoke on Sunday.

The protest occurred while Bloomberg was speaking about the 55th anniversary of Bloody Sunday at Brown Chapel AME Church in Selma.

While introducing Bloomberg, Rev. Harry L. Seawright noted that the former New York mayor had initially declined an invitation to speak at the church because he said he was too busy trying to defeat President Donald Trump.
