Selma, Montgomery, and “Good Trouble”
This week, Gary, Mary, and Eryn reflect on a particularly important moment in the civil rights movement, the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965. They’ll explore how the events of Selma fit into the bigger picture of the civil rights movement and the passage of the Voting Rights Act. What can this moment teach us about the significance of turning points in a movement? And what lessons from it are still very relevant today?
