Operation Understanding DC Class 20 - Selma, Alabama

Class 20 of Operation Understanding DC in Selma, Alabama.

The OUDC students met with Hannah Berger and another ember of Selma's Temple Mishkan Israel, experienced a powerful historical experiential workshop with Ms. Afriye We-Kandodis, and were guided through the city's history by Bloody Sunday veteran and heroic local activist Ms. Joanne Bland. She co-founded the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute in the city. The day ended with a march over the Edmund Pettus Bridge, site of the original marches in 1965, which helped spark the nation's conscience.
