Joanne B.

Selma, AL, United States

I was a participant of the Voting Rights Struggle in Selma, Alabama in 1965, and I was part of the march on Bloody Sunday, March 7, 1965 when peaceful marchers attempted to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge to walk from Selma to Montgomery to demand the right to vote from then governor George Wallace.

I was jailed along with other students numerous times for protesting the unjust laws of segregation. I have done educational tours on the Voting Rights Struggle for over 20 years. I now reside in Selma, Alabama, and conduct tours that revisit this troubling time in our Nation's history.

A Recent Review of this guide

Dear Joanne - You made this a once in a lifetime experience for us. We were overwhelmed by the fact that you are one of the freedom fighters and actually participated in the battles in Selma. We had a very emotional and superb 3 hour tour in your neighbourhood with you as the real storyteller - wow you are an amazing strong woman with a lot of stamina. Hearing you telling the story of what happened in those days was heartbreaking. I have travelled to the USA many times since 1992 and this tour is the best
