Part 6 – Bridge to Freedom (1965)
The fists raised in the 1960s are getting wrinkled with age and still the struggle continues for equal rights and recognition–black is not dangerous but equally normal. This episode examines the effort to restore voting rights in Selma, Alabama during the Selma to Montgomery marches.
This 14-part documentary is very eye opening. You’ll see footage of real happenings, as well as interviews that you may not have seen or remember…it was over 50 years ago. Come refresh your memory or learn something new. Reviewing these events can help us to be anti-racist and develop ways and means to change the times we live in now.
