Bloody Sunday commemoration continues in Selma

Blloody SundayThe Bloody Sunday 50th anniversary commemoration continues Sunday with a series of events in Selma before a group retraces the steps that helped secure equal voting rights 50 years ago.

Sunday's events are expected to include church services, film screenings and a pre-march rally at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
