The Story of the Selma Voting Rights Marches in Photographs

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a momentous victory for civil rights activists. But one major obstacle remained in the path toward equal rights for African Americans: the right to vote. In the South, segregationists prevented African Americans from voting. Civil rights leaders believed it was time for strong action and chose Selma, Alabama, as the rallying point. There, the marches and protests captured the nation’s attention. Through gripping primary source photographs, author David Aretha explores this important time in American history.
