Scenes from the second Selma-to-Montgomery, Alabama, civil rights march led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Selma Alabama Date:1965, March 9 Duration:2 min 18 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Led by Dr. Martin King, Jr. African Americans, joined by some white supporters, especially white clergymen, proceed on a second attempt to march from Selma to Montgomery Alabama, to call attention to racial discrimination. Signs identify the Alabama River and the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The march is halted temporarily on the bridge. An older white man and woman, who seem to be known to local people, come forward and lead the march, without interference, allowing marchers to proceed to the end of the bridge.
