This museum has a lot of historical stuff about the Tuskegee Airmen. This national park is located in Tuskegee, Alabama so you can see a lot of places were the airmen were training and participating at. Many schools around the country and world go to the national park to see actual things that were involed during the World War II that effected the Airmen. This park contains many different materials than the type of materials that we use today. This park teachers people the uses of science, engineering, and technology to understand and better manage these spectacular resources. They also  encourage you to experience for yourself the natural soundscapes and lightscapes of many national parks and see the different things in this wonderful world. This park is a primay source when trying to get more information about the Tuskegee Airmen because you can actually see were they were at and what kind of this they had and went through.

Bloody Sunday, Revisited

Bloody Sunday, Revisited | Civil Rights Movement. | Scoop.it

by LINCOLN CAPLAN, NY Times


March 7, 1965, became known as Bloody Sunday in the annals of the civil rights struggle in America. That day, around 500 people set out to march the 54 miles from Selma, Ala., to the state capital in Montgomery in support of what would become the Voting Rights Act.

The voting rights movement was transformed into a national cause when the marchers were stopped on the Edmund Pettus Bridge as they left Selma. A state trooper told them they were “an unlawful assembly” and ordered them to disperse. When they did not, they were attacked by about 150 troopers and others who wielded billy clubs and tear gas. Fifty-eight people were treated for injuries at a local hospital, including Representative John Lewis, then 25 and chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, for a skull fracture.

Two weeks later, after a federal judge ruled they had a constitutional right to march, the group set out again, under National Guard protection. It was 25,000 strong by the time the march ended on March 25 in Montgomery. That summer, the Voting Rights Act became law.

A commemoration of the march is scheduled to begin Sunday in Selma, led by Mr. Lewis and Vice President Joseph Biden Jr., and will end in Montgomery on Friday. Its urgent purpose is to underscore why the Supreme Court must uphold a central provision of the Voting Rights Act, which is now under challenge in Shelby County, Ala. v. Holder. That provision — Section 5 — applies in Alabama and other places where voting discrimination remains much worse than elsewhere in the country. It requires that any change in voting rules be preapproved by the Justice Department or a special court in Washington. Without this provision, there would be no way to prevent new efforts to block blacks and Hispanics from voting or to reduce their electoral power.

The justices heard oral argument on the Shelby County case last Wednesday. This week’s events in Alabama should remind them of the enormous cost many Americans have paid to win the right to vote, and why that remains under persistent threat and must be defended.
