The Selma to Montgomery marches were three protest marches, held in 1965, along the 54-mile highway from Selma, Alabama to the state capital of Montgomery. Spearheaded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., activists and celebrities alike risked their lives to give us the freedoms that we enjoy today. Although we've come a long way in 53 years (that's right), many things haven't changed. Celebrate the accomplishments of Americans of all colors with this t-shirt symbolizing the struggle that we all must take a stand in. Unapologetically Black History Month 2018.
