Black History Month Day 2
I had the honor and privilege to cross the now famed Edmund Pettus Bridge with Rev Frederick Reese who is pictured in the above picture holding hands with Coretta Scott King as the led the march to Montgomery with Dr MLK jr.
Frederick Douglas Reese, or F.D. Reese, (born November 28, 1929) is a civil rights activist, educator, and minister from Selma, Alabama. He was a member of Selma's "Courageous Eight,"and was the president of the Dallas County Voters League (DCVL) when that organization invited the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to come to Selma to amplify the city's local voting rights campaign. This campaign gave birth to the Selma to Montgomery marches, which later led to the passage of the Voting Rights Act.
