Full Weekend of Events for 57th Annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee in Selma

22bridgecrossingjubilee

There will be plenty to see and do in Selma for the 57th Annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee.

The event remembers the Bloody Sunday march of 1965 and the passage of the Voting Rights Act. Each year, it draws thousands of people to downtown Selma. This year, Vice President Kamala Harris is scheduled to attend events on Sunday. In addition, U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell (D-Alabama) will bring members of Congress and civil rights leaders to Selma as part of the Faith and Politics Institute’s Civil Rights Pilgrimage.
