Last in a six-part docmentary series on the American civil rights movement. In this segment, the lessons of a decade are brought to bear in the climactic 1965 Freedom March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, when thousands joined together to march fifty miles for freedom. During the drive to make voting rights a national issue, strategic and ideological differences began to surface between Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the younger activists of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). As white "backlash" and segregationist resistance intensified, President Lyndon B. Johnson promised to further the movement's legislative goals. Then, as the movement began to splinter into factions, the National Voting Rights Act became federal law
