This poster features an image by photographer Matt Heron that captures a moment from the historic Civil Rights March from Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama that took place on March 7, 1965. This photo came from the first of the three Civil Rights marches that went from Selma to Montgomery. The first march will be remembered forever by it’s other name, “Bloody Sunday”.

It was called “Bloody Sunday” because over seventeen marchers were hospitalized and many, many more were left injured and bloodied after state troopers knocked them down, beat them with nightsticks and fired tear gas at the marchers.
