Selma, ALA: A commemorative march was led 3/8 across the Edmund Pettus Bridge where 10 years ago mounted police officials turned back the Selma-to-Montgomery march, an incident which is credited with passage of the 1965 Voter Rights Act. Leaders for the march were (L to R) Rev. James P. Robinson of Selma; Coretta King, wife of the late Dr. Martin Luther King; John Lewis, head of the Voter Education Project, Atlanta; F. D. Reese, march organizer from Selma; and Ben Owens of Selma with crutches.
