WNEW's Story of Selma

Starting with 3200 people in Selma, Alabama and ending in Montgomery, Alabama with 25,000, the Selma-to-Montgomery March is considered to have "...represented the political and emotional peak of the modern civil rights movement." For some, "...the best and most lasting evidence of [the spirit of the event] was to be found in the songs that evolved from the march." This collection of songs was compiled by Pete Seeger, Len Chandler, and the Freedom Voices. It represents one of the most powerful tools behind this movement-song.
