Memories of Blood Sunday

As a young freedom fighter, Lewis was notably among protesters attacked by state troopers in the event known as "Bloody Sunday." On March 7, 1965, some 600 voting rights demonstrators attempted to march peacefully from Selma, Alabama, to the state capital of Montgomery, but were met will tear gas and billy clubs at Selma's Edmund Pettus Bridge.
