Filming for “The First Rosa” — a documentary about Lutheran black-ministry pioneer Rosa Jinsey Young — got underway Sept. 22-26 in and around Selma, Ala.
The project pays tribute to the church confessor who established some 30 Lutheran schools and 35 chapels in that area of the country during the early 1900s. It is partially funded by The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod but needs continued donations to complete the film.
