Selma march continues

The commemoration of the Selma to Montgomery voting rights march continues today. This weekend marked the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday and the crossing of the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Even though marchers were stopped that day in 1965 they didn't give up. They regrouped and marched all the way to Montgomery. This week a group is marching in their footsteps. We'll show you what they're doing along the way on FOX6 News at 5.
