50th Anniversary of "Bloody Sunday"

Come see President Obama and all attending representatives.

More important, let them see us!


This is the fiftieth (50th) anniversary of the March 7, 1965 “Bloody Sunday March” in Selma at which the 800 civil rights marchers led by John Lewis, Hosea Williams, Albert Turner and Bob Mants were beaten at the foot of the bridge.

President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle will be in Selma on Saturday for a rally at the eastern side of the Edmund Pettus Bridge from 11:00 AM to 1:30PM in support of voting rights.

According to the White House press office, “This event is open to members of the general public. Tickets are not required to attend the President’s remarks. Although a ticket is not required for attendance, access to the event will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Guests must access the event from the intersection of Selma Avenue and Church Street. Doors will open to the public at 8:30 AM on Saturday, March 7.

All attendees will go through airport-like security and should bring as few personal items as possible. No bags, sharp objects, umbrellas, liquids, or signs will be permitted.”
