President Obama and the 50th Anniversary of 'Bloody Sunday'

Today we are heading to Selma, Alabama to join President Obama on this historic occasion. 50 years ago, 'Bloody Sunday' at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma triggered the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Today, we join the first black president 50 years later.

In Alabama, in the Heart of Dixie, in the Deep Red South. Y'all want to know where the Democratic underground is? Watch the people who gather at the bridge in Selma. There are some of them, hopeful and faithful. Celebrating the improbable!

Proof that “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.”

See y'all in Selma!
