Selma & Montgomery

In Selma, Alabama, we were able to walk the Edmund Pettus Bridge, the site of “Bloody Sunday” fifty-eight years ago. Feeling gratitude for all of the foot soldiers who marched to eventually lead to the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. After a powerful tour of the Slavery and Civil Rights Museum that highlighted the Middle Passage stage of the Atlantic slave trade, we headed to Montgomery, Alabama. There we visited the Rosa Parks Museum and toured the Southern Poverty Law Center. As we explored the impact of hate groups around the nation, we were inspired by Dr. King’s quote above the Civil Rights Memorial, “Until justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream . . . .”
