Forty-nine years ago, a determined group of Americans marched into history, facing down grave danger in the name of justice and equality--walking to protest the continued discrimination and violence against African Americans. On a day that became known as "Bloody Sunday", these brave men and women met billy-clubs and tear gas with courage and resolution. Their actions helped set an example for a generation to stand up for the fundamental freedoms due to all people. We recognize those who marched that day--and the millions more who have done their part throughout our nation's history to bend the arc of the moral universe toward justice.
