SELMA BRIDGE CROSSING JUBILEE 2018: MARCH 1-5, 2018
The Bridge Crossing Jubilee is an annual event held in Selma, Alabama, to commemorate the Selma-to-Montgomery marches of 1965, which played a crucial role in the civil rights movement. The Jubilee takes place over several days in March and includes a variety of events, such as a parade, a film festival, a banquet, and a reenactment of the historic march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
The Jubilee began in 1976 and has grown into a major celebration of civil rights and social justice. It attracts people from all over the country who come to honor the courage and sacrifice of those who marched for voting rights and equality. The Edmund Pettus Bridge, which was the site of violent clashes between police and marchers on “Bloody Sunday” in 1965, has become a powerful symbol of the struggle for civil rights and is a focal point of the Jubilee.
In addition to commemorating the past, the Jubilee also looks to the future and seeks to inspire a new generation of activists. It provides an opportunity for people to come together and reflect on the progress that has been made, as well as the work that still needs to be done to achieve true equality and justice for all. The Bridge Crossing Jubilee is a powerful reminder of the power of collective action and the importance of standing up for what is right.
