Today marks the beginning of the last – and ultimately successful – march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama led by Martin Luther King Jr. The march has been commemorated all month because it was a powerful turning point toward justice in the U.S. Personally, I believe that remembering this history – in all its various manifestations – is important. It helps us steady the course and stay true to some of our nation’s core principles.
If you have a moment, please take a look at some of my thoughts in Memories of Selma – All of Them. I’d love to hear what you think!
