Black History

Selma, Alabama

     On March 10, 1965, a number of blacks began a march to Montgomery but were stopped at Pettus Bridge by a police blockade. The police used tear gas, whips, and clubs. Fifty people were

put in the hospital. The incident is dubbed "Bloody Sunday" by the media. However, this attack was later given credit for pushing voting rights through five months later.
