In the name of African-American voting rights, 3,200 civil rights demonstrators, led by Martin Luther King Jr., begin a historic march from Selma, Alabama, to the State Capitol at Montgomery. U.S. Army and National Guard troops were on hand to provide safe passage for the “Alabama Freedom March,” which twice had been turned back by Alabama state police at Selma’s Edmund Pettus Bridge.
