This past March 6, Dawn Crim and her 12-year-old daughter, Danielle, began their journey to Birmingham and then Selma, Alabama to walk in the steps of those who – 50 years ago – marched from Selma to Montgomery in their determined quest to gain the right to vote.
At the top of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma on Sunday, March 8, Dawn turned to her daughter and said, “When you turn 18 you will exercise your right to vote, and you will take your children. That is what we do, WE VOTE! That is why we are here today.” Once the March began, Danielle said, “It was amazing! It felt like I was walking beside the spirits of everyone on Bloody Sunday and everyone who walked from Selma to Montgomery.”
On this program, Dawn and Danielle Crim relive details from their historic journey and the firsthand experiences that brought to life those memorable moments from 50 years ago.
