We shall overcome. It’s the 50th anniversary of the “Bloody Sunday” assault on voting rights activists.
Pres. Barack Obama and surviving marchers plan to commemorate the historic event.
Close to 100,000 people are expected to reenact the march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge Saturday.
Buses filled with dozens of Atlanta Public Schools students left for Selma. Before getting to Selma, buses will stop in Birmingham, Montgomery, and Marion, Alabama. The students will get to live what they’ve been learning about during the re-enactment of the historic march for black voting rights on the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
