|After twice being turned back at Edmund Pettus Bridge. The March to Freedom from Selma began on March 21, 1965.|
Next year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March from Selma, Alabama to the state capitol 54 miles away in Montgomery. The march, from March 21-25, 1965 was a cold, wet affair that months later resulted in the Voting Rights Act being passed — "the most successful civil rights law in the nation's history.".
The Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail today is marked with historical markers along U.S. Highway 80 and the Lowndes County Interpretive Center — one mile from Tent City — that recalls the March and the struggles of African Americans in the deep south of the mid 1960s. At the Interpretive Center we purchased two books of poetry.
