Selma to Montgomery, 1965

Civil rights protesters marching from Selma to Montgomery

The marches, prompted by Martin Luther King, Jr., protested violence against African American and other civil rights activists in Selma.


Days before this photograph was taken, an attack on three Unitarian Universalist ministers in Selma left one of them, James Reeb, dead.
