  • To have the opportunity to walk across this bridge was a time to reflect on the history that came along with this walk. Lives were lost for the freedom of all. 
  • We took our three children on a Sunday afternoon. We parked in the downtown Selma area and walked across the bridge and back. It is an amazing historic must see but the sidewalks are very narrow and t...  more »
  • I went to Selma to specifically walk over this bridge and to try to envision what it was like to see a line of policeman who were lined up and ready to pummel all the marchers...myself included.

  • In addition to reading and watching documentaries on the Civil Rights era (we are in a new and continued era today), it is very beneficial to visit the sites where influential events occurred. When you visit The Bridge, be sure to stop by the local gift shops and museums in addition to walking across the bridge in solidarity with the foot soldiers that helped shape our lives today.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
