Apparently, they re-enact the Bloody Sunday March in Selma every year. I guess in March. This image is from the event this year. Taken off the CNN feed without permission.
The Edmund Pettus Bridge.
He was a segregationist and a Klan member. The bridge in Selma Alabama bears his name. But most people will now associate his name with the March to Montgomery. I find that very satisfying.
We walked over that bridge solemnly and silently last summer as part of our civil rights bus trip. Very sobering and atmospheric.
