Marking the 50th anniversary of the third Selma-to-Montgomery march. Local and state police, and white vigilantes, stymied the first two marches by beating and murdering marchers and activists. The President ordered US Army, federal police, and FBI agents to protect the peaceful third march by to Montgomery by people seeking voters rights legislative changes. Dr Martin Luther King Jr led 3000 people out of Selma on this date; they arrived, massed at 25,000 strong, at the legislature in Montgomery on March 25th.
