Selma Alabama was filled with thousands of people to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday that took place on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Music was an intregal part of the Civil Rights Movement and today music still holds a special place in our conciousness.

Congressman John Lewis opened up the ‘Salute to Selma’ Concert with the following words,

DSC_3341“50 years ago, we walked across this bridge, and we had music in our hearts. Because without music, the civil rights movement would have been a bird without wings. We must continue to sing the song of the movement and continue to move forward.”
