The three Selma to Montgomery marches in 1965 were part of the Selma Voting Rights Movement and led to the passage that year of the Voting Rights Act, a landmark federal achievement of the 1960s American Civil Rights Movement. Activists publicized the three protest marches to walk the 54-mile highway from Selma to the Alabama state capital of Montgomery as showing the desire of black American citizens to exercise their constitutional right to vote, in defiance of segregationist repression.
If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.
