Selma Marchers rebuke Rush Limaugh and Sean Hannity in a soulful rendition of Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around. The Great Amen follows.
March 8, 2009 marked the 44th annual Bloody Sunday March in Selma, Alabama.
For a little history:
On “Bloody Sunday,” March 7, 1965, some 600 civil rights marchers headed east out of Selma on U.S. Route 80. They got only as far as the Edmund Pettus Bridge six blocks away, where state and local lawmen attacked them with billy clubs and tear gas and drove them back into Selma. Two days later on March 9, Martin Luther King, Jr., led a “symbolic” march to the bridge. Then civil rights leaders sought court protection for a third, full-scale march from Selma to the state capitol in Montgomery. –National Parks Service Website
