Dr. Bernice King, the daughter of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke at the Alabama Capitol as part of the 50th anniversary of the Selma to Montgomery civil rights march.

The daughter of Gov. George Wallace, Peggy Wallace Kennedy, spoke in Montgomery at the 50th anniversary commemoration of the Selma to Montgomery march.
