Last week began with an estimated 70,000 people gathered at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma to commemorate the 50th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” a reminder of the violence that black people and their supporters met even as they adhered to nonviolent resistance. President Obama’s speech at the event was clear and inspiring, a call to meet the many challenges we still face today.
