Montgomery, Alabama: March's Footprints
The idea of a march got off to a horrible start, as walkers were beaten by the Selma police after the start. But eventually a group was allowed to take that walk, and the spot in front of the State Capitol was the finish line. About 25,000 people gathered to mark the occasion.
There's an unusual marker to note the march's finish, but you have to look down to notice it. Instead of a crosswalk a block from the Capitol steps, there are images of footprints. It stands in for the thousands who were on this spot a half-century ago.
