We arrived in Selma, AL Sunday morning. What a day!! We found a parking space in the downtown area (it was a miracle to find that space.) We walked the dogs on a grassy area that was quite clear of broken bottles and debris. It was decided I would go to the rally outside of Brown Chapel, the organization center during the original walk, while Doug stayed with the dogs.
I have never before felt like such a minority with my very white face. At the same time I have never been treated as politely in my life. Everyone greeted me with a smile and hello. We met eye to eye, almost as though we knew we had a common purpose - the right to vote.
