Description

Selma, Ala.: Frederick D. Reese (recent photo), one of the leaders in the march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge here 3/7/65, a day many black and white people still refer to as 'Bloody Sunday,' says there would not have been a voting rights bill signed in August, 1965, if authorities had not accosted the marchers. Today, Reese, 45, is one of five blacks elected in 1972 to an 11-member City Council here.
