Remembering Selma March - Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Dallas, TX - Photos by Randy Stewart

Dallas Photographer Randy Stewart photographs 'Remembering Selma March' event  - Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge Dallas, TX

The three Selma to Montgomery marches in 1965 were part of the Selma Voting Rights Movement and led to the passage that year of the Voting Rights Act, a landmark federal achievement of the 1960s American Civil Rights Movement. Activists publicized the three protest marches to walk the 54-mile highway from Selma to the Alabama state capital of Montgomery as showing the desire of black American citizens to exercise their constitutional right to vote, in defiance of segregationist repression. Alabama State troopers attacked civil-rights demonstrators outside Selma, Alabama, on Bloody Sunday, March 7, 1965
