  • I've walked across this bridge literally hundreds (and I mean HUNDREDS) of times and anybody that knows me will tell you I'm not exaggerating in the least! It's nothing special to me, but maybe somebody that's not from Selma might get a kick out of it, with all it's substantial historical value.
  • Incredible to see this in person. As I drove into town for the first time I got goosebumps as I recognized a town that I've seen pictures of in every US history textbook I've read through school. Well worth a day trip to see.
  • This bridge is very exciting to see, the history that is deeply soiled in its concert. A bridge with so much history, before a movie. It's time for a name change
  • Historic. Nice views, easy to walk across. There's a parking area and shady park where you can leave your car.
  • A beautiful and historic bridge that opens up the wonders of the past and the hopes for the future you get a sense of awe when you travel the footsteps of dr. Martin Luther King and other civil rights leaders have traveled and must Journey for any historian.
