On This Day…..

March to Montgomery…..

March 21, 1965…..

Under the protection of federal troops, Martin Luther King, Jr. and 3,000 marchers begin a five-day march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. More than 25,000 demonstrators gathered at the Montgomery Capitol building, where King delivered his famous lines, “How long will it take? I come to say to you this afternoon however difficult the moment, however frustrating the hour, it will not be long.”
