One of the greatest leaders in American history, Martin Luther King Jr., organized a march from Selma, Alabama, to that state s capital, Montgomery, in 1965. He and other activists wanted to call attention to the civil rights violations that plagued Alabama, as well as the struggle many African Americans were going through to exercise their right to vote. Readers learn about this important moment in American history through comprehensive text, quotes from civil rights leaders, and powerful photographs from the historic march to Montgomery.
