Rep. John Lewis on crossing Edmund Pettus Bridge

In 1965, Rep. John Lewis led a march in Selma, Alabama for voting rights. He, along with many others, was badly beaten and they would never make it to Montgomery, where the march was supposed to end. Later that month, thousands would join Martin Luther King Jr. to finish what was started.
