Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot

To mark the 50th anniversary of the civil rights march on Selma, Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, has released a free teaching kit that includes a documentary, Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot, and related resources. The film tells the story of a courageous group of students and teachers who, along with other activists, fought a nonviolent battle to win voting rights for African Americans in the South. The kit also includes a viewer's guide to help educators plan how they will teach about the Selma-to-Montgomery marches, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and voting issues today; a timeline of activities and events leading up to and following the marches; and a map of Alabama illustrated with locations significant to the voting rights struggle. Additionally, Teaching Tolerance is holding a virtual, interactive march throughout the rest of the month, to honor those who fought for equality and to remind a new generation that the march must continue.
