Selma marked the anniversary of a watershed moment of the civil rights movement last month. The 18th annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee took place last month in the west Alabama city during the first weekend of March. The event marked the 46th anniversary of what is universally known as “Bloody Sunday.” As we all know – and some will remember – civil rights demonstrators marching toward Montgomery across the Edmund Pettus Bridge were attacked and many badly beaten on that sad day. But, the Selma-to-Montgomery march was held later, building momentum for passage of landmark voting rights laws. Over 1000 participants again walked across the bridge on Sunday, March 6th, capping the annual commemoration. It’s good to remember and honor those folks who put their lives on the line in an effort to bring about badly-needed changes in the United States.
