Selma

Coretta Scott King,John Lewis,

It’s been 50 years since “Bloody Sunday” Dr. King and his wife “Coreta Scott King” along with thousands of others walked arm in arm in a non violent protest for equal voting rights and for a young black deacon killed by a state trooper.

In 1965 on March 7 people walked across “Edmund Pettus Bridge” in Alabama in hopes of making America better. They endured beating with night sticks, tear gas, and were trampled by horses.

All that violence that was not in vain  that same year President Johnson  sign the bill to pass the “Voters Act Rights” law.
