Pebbles in Selma

In Selma, this is the Brown Chapel AME church building where meetings took place during planning and organizing of the marches for equal access to voting rights.
Our TAH group walks down to the street from the playground/staging area for the marches to Montgomery.
The low income homes across from the Brown Chapel AME (African Methodist Episcopal) church in Selma. Joanne lived here when she was young. Many of the same families or their children and grandchildren still live here.

A "hands on" lesson about what is important. Remembering the sacrifices people made for our freedom, and that one person can make a difference. Justin holds a rock from the ground in Selma, where the march to Montgomery began. (Joanne thought Justin was cute.)

Pebbles in Selma on the pavement that Joanne Bland fights to save. It is the same pavement on which marchers staged the walk to across the Edmund Pettus Bridge to Montgomery.
