Thousands of people marched across a bridge in Selma, Alabama, Sunday — a reenactment of what's known as "Bloody Sunday." In 1965, civil rights protesters attempted to march from Selma to Montgomery but were quickly met by police. Bloody Sunday galvanized support for the Voting Rights Act. This year's commemoration comes just days after the U.S. Supreme Court heard a challenge to a portion of the law.
