Episode Summary

Bridge to Freedom - 1965
From PBS - Ten years after the bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama, the civil rights leadership has become more sophisticated in its use of protest strategy. The program explores efforts by civil rights activists in Selma, Alabama, to sustain nonviolent street protest to generate nationwide sympathy and federal intervention. The Selma to Montgomery march is depicted as the last great gathering of the Southern-based movement and provides an opportunity to examine the gains of this 11-year period, particularly exploring the changes that have been effected in all parts of American society.moreless
