Flâneurs éclairés

Flâneurs éclairés March 19, 1965

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr marches the 50 miles from Selma to Montgomery with his wife Coretta and supporters.  This was the third attempt--the marchers were attacked by state and local police with clubs and tear gas previously on March 7, 1965, "Bloody Sunday," and did not complete an attempt March 9th to comply with a court injunction.  The march was finally successful with the protection of 2000 US Army soldiers.
