  • Bloody Sunday 50th anniversary: Thousands crowd Selma Bridge

    The Washington Post - 03/08/2015

    The Students Unite organization was among the first to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge on Sunday morning, supported by the Freedom Foundation of Selma. They locked arms, they sang, they kneeled and prayed.

    Lola Akingbade and Akiera Gilbert led a group of fellow students from Northeastern University in Boston as part of the Students Unite group.

    “We see Selma not only as representing the past but a point of reference for the future,” Akingbade, 19, said. “We wanted to be involved . . . to have our voices heard.”
