The 50th anniversary recognition of the Voting Rights March came to Selma, Alabama, this year and students from Jefferson County Open School were there to celebrate the historic event.

The students, 17 members of a year-long Black American History class, and two teachers left on March 4 to drive to Selma, and along the way they visited historical sites related to the civil rights movement like the Brown vs. Board of Education Historical Site in Topeka, Kansas, and the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee.

While in Selma, the students will participate in workshops, listen to former and current voting rights activists and participate in the 54-mile march from Selma to Montgomery over five days.
