Description

This image is from Joshua's series Road to Selma. The road from Selma to Montgomery, AL wasn't without opposition. Yet through adversity, Martin Luther King Jr. led thousands from the African-American community into new and deserved territory known as the Voting Rights Act of 1965. As seen in these photographs, today's streets mirror similar scenes from the past. Across the country, community members of all races mourn the wrongful deaths of black boys and young men and women, while still fighting for what they thought they had all along—civil rights. Their sentiments can be heard: "We have marched from Selma, but 50 years later, where are we now?”
