Storyboard Text

  • Many of the times that protesters tried to march from Selma to Montgomery, they were met with violence from state and local authorities, but these violent outbursts from people toward peaceful protest only made them stronger, and people around the world who saw this violence backed the protesters and even tried to help their movement.
  • After the protesters made it to Montgomery with the protection of U.S troops, the marchers were met by nearly 50,000 supporters for their movement to hear speakers such as Martin Luther King, who attracted attention to the movement because of his high profile, and Ralph Bunche, where King also proclaimed his quote "No tide of racism can stop us."
  • As the protests went on, President Lyndon Johnson addressed congress calling for a voting rights legislation that guaruntees the right to vote to all African Americans, and bans the barriers that prevented them from becoming registered to vote. The aftermath of this greatly reduced the disparity between black and white voters, and allowed more African Americans to enter political careers
