Bloody Sunday | Road Trip


Civil Rights leaders try to desegregate the most racist capital in the nation, Birmingham, Alabama. On "Bloody Sunday," March 7, 1965, some 600 civil rights marchers headed east out of Selma on U.S. Route 80. They had only marched six blocks to Edmund Pettus Bridge when state and local policemen attacked them with billy clubs and tear gas, driving them back into Selma.
