Saturday, March 7, marks the 50th anniversary of what's become know as Bloody Sunday. The march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, AL ended that day when 600 marchers were attacked by Alabama state troopers and others with tear gas and billy clubs. The march was part of the Selma Voting Rights Movement. Another march that started on March 21, 1965, ended peacefully when 25,000 people arrived at the state capitol to support voting rights.
