Commemorating Bloody Sunday at a crucial moment for civil rights

March 11, 2022 - Thousands of people gathered recently in Alabama for the 57th anniversary of the historic Selma to Montgomery March for voting rights, which was met with police violence as peaceful demonstrators tried to cross a bridge named for a Klan leader. This year’s event took place as state legislatures across the South are passing bills to limit voting and protesting.
