Synopsis

On March 6, 1965, Governor George Wallace's state police beat and tear gassed Civil Rights marchers who dared to cross Selma, Alabama's Edmund Pettis Bridge. The event, known as Bloody Sunday, was one of the most important moments of the civil rights movement and turned the sleepy southern town into a showcase for bigotry and oppression. The program includes interviews with key participants on both sides of the march and examines how the event affected the country's attitude about civil rights.
