This is the 50th Anniversary of the March in Selma
In 1965, about 600 people got together in Selma on Sunday, March 7, to march on the Edmund Pettus Bridge over the Alabama River to Montgomery. However, they were harassed and attacked by Alabama State troopers and local police. Over fifty people were hospitalized after this horrible incident. This was known as Bloody Sunday.
