Biden leads re-enactment of voting rights march
Question of the Day
SELMA, Ala. (AP) — Vice President Joseph R. Biden led civil rights leaders and national political figures in a ceremonial crossing of a Selma bridge where voting rights marchers were beaten in 1965.
Mr. Biden put his arm around Rep. John Lewis, Georgia Democrat, who was one of the original marchers attacked by state troopers at the start of the march to Montgomery 48 years ago. Mr. Biden said that Mr. Lewis and the other marchers showed courage and that determination in the name of justice always prevails.
More than 20 U.S. senators and representatives, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and civil rights leaders, including Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, joined the re-enactment Sunday afternoon,
About 5,000 people joined the re-enactment. That’s 10 times the number of original marchers at what’s now known as “Bloody Sunday.”
