This March 7 marks the 56th anniversary of the ‘Bloody Sunday’ when 600 peaceful marchers were met with violence at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Hosea Williams was leading them.
Lowery says changing the name of the Edmund Pettus bridge, even to honor the late Rep. John Lewis, would be ‘a whitewash of our history.’
The solemn march of solidarity, attended by people of all races and ages, gives a sense of the courage and commitment of ‘ordinary people who did extraordinary things.’
