Samuel L. Jackson asks, "What Would Your World Look Like Without LDF?"
Event Date(s):Saturday, March 7, 2015 - 12:00pm
Location to be announced
On March 7, 1965, hundreds of citizens were brutally attacked as they attempted one of a series of marches from Selma to Montgomery to protest racial discrimination in voting and consequent exclusion of Black voters from the democratic process.
These demonstrators' sacrifices resulted in Congress's enactment of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, considered one of the most important pieces of legislation in our nation’s history. The Voting Rights Act has since been reauthorized by Congress, and upheld by the U. S. Supreme Court, on four different occasions over the past four decades.
Join us on March 7, 2015, as we recreate the Selma to Montgomery “Bloody Sunday” march with special guests and events.
