The death of a young black activist named Jimmie Lee Jackson at a voter's rights march resulted in anger, disbelief, and most important, the decision to march fifty miles across the state of Alabama in peaceful protest. Kids will learn that under the leadership of Martin Luther King Jr., 25,000 people completed the march to the state capitol, resulting eventually in the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and increased integration in politics to this day.
