Bret had always wanted to see Selma, Alabama; site of Bloody Sunday and home of the National Voting Rights Museum. When we arrived in Selma, we found a tiny little museum filled with history and stories. Although Bret and I vaguely remembered the Bloody Sunday sections from our junior high text books, the kids had never heard about it before and were amazed and disturbed to hear the stories. Right as we were preparing to leave, a small black woman walked up to us and introduced herself.
“I’m Annie, I was worked with Dr. King and I was there on Bloody Sunday when we were attacked.”
