Just over four years ago, in March of 1965, a young Boston minister was put to death in Alabama. His crime was to come to the town of Selma to help Martin Luther King show black people how to become registered voters. A fortnight later, Dr. King led the great march from Selma to Montgomery ("the cradle of the Confederacy"), to let the world know that there were whites in Alabama who would kill to stop black men and women from becoming voting Americans.
