Exhibit: Selma to Montgomery: A March for the Right to Vote: Photographs by Spider Martin
This photography exhibit focuses on the 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, when more than 2,000 people crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala., to march for African American voting rights and equality. It was part of the campaign for African American voting rights, equality and social justice. Marches and rallies resulted in the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which was signed into law on August 6.
