  • The feeling I experienced being there is difficult to describe... pride, sadness, hope, honor all at once. The town itself appeared abandoned and forgotten; but it was well worth the trip! Don't expect much of a choice of places to eat. The one place that was recommended was closed while we were there.
  • Its so peaceful to walk over the bridge and look at the beautiful surroundings.
  • An important site of our history. Visit the National Park Service - Selma to Montgomery Tail - across the street during your visit.
  • An important place in American history. Walk over the bridge and try to imagine having the courage to march towards a mob of angry racists ready to beat you.
  • It was an awesome experience. My wife and I got to meet one of the participants of the Bloody Sunday during the early civil rights movement . Not only did we get to meet Ms. Bland, but we got to hear how the movement started. I would definitely encourage everyone to take a trip to Selma, AL. for an in person experience.
