FOCAL Events Mark 50 Years: Selma to Montgomery

As the world focuses on the commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery March, we too look forward to this event with great anticipation.  We honor the courage and bravery of those, who in spite of the danger, stepped out on the strength of their convictions and began this march that led to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
