        The Most Powerful Instrument

        This video segment from the PBS series Finding Your Roots features Congressman John Lewis’s recollection of the March on Selma. On March 7, 1965 peaceful protestors gathered to fight for African Americans’ right to vote. The group planned on marching from Selma, AL to Montgomery, AL. The protestors were confronted by police who ordered them to disperse. When the protestors asked for a moment to pray, the police advanced. What began as a peaceful protest turned into a violent one—the day is now known as “Bloody Sunday”.
