John lewisThe Edmund Pettus Bridge, which crosses the Alabama River in Selma, bears the weight of seminal moments in the civil rights movement. The weight of seminal moments with seminal figures.

John Lewis, who walked the bridge with about 600 other voting rights advocates on March 7, 1965, was among those who helped make that demonstration a pivotal one in the fight for African-American suffrage.

On that day, police infamously beat demonstrators bloody – earning the day the moniker "Bloody Sunday." Lewis suffered a fractured skull.
