Abstract:

Mississippi becomes a testing ground of constitutional principles as civil rights activists focus their energies on the right to vote.

In the spring of 1965, a young civil rights activist is shot and the nation is horrified by TV images of troopers gassing demonstrators on a Selma bridge. From across the nation 25,000 people amass to make the historic march to Selma to Montgomery, helping to ensure the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
