SOLD OUT Homeschool Day – Selma March
March 18 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Witness to History: Selma Photography of Stephen Somerstein
Two thousand marchers set out March 21 along Route 80, known as the “Jefferson Davis Highway.” After two failed attempts to complete the march, President Lyndon B. Johnson dispatched federal and state troops to guard the demonstrators along the way to the state capitol, 54 miles away. By the time the marchers reached Montgomery, their number had grown to 25,000.
Hearing of the events, 24-year-old student photographer Stephen Somerstein jumped on a bus in New York City and headed to Alabama. Join us on March 18 and learn about the historic 1965 Selma to Montgomery, Alabama civil rights march.
