  • 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.
  • This is a historical landmark in rural Alabama. The structure of the bright is well maintained and preserved. The thing the city need is to take advantage of this site to bring some business opportunities to the community.
  • Small bridge but great historical site. Good visit for tourist.
  • I came from Boston to experience this bridge. I definitely think the name of the bridge should be changed but other than that It was amazing to be able to walk from one end to the other...very emotional
  • A neat historical experience with a good interpretive center.
