The Story of How Grinnell Students Brought Selma Home to Iowa

Henry Wilhelm `68 (Copyright Henry Wilhelm)  John Phillips, Photographer, Selma, Alabama, March 1965

On March 25, 1965, an epic demonstration for voting rights ended in a triumphant rally at the Alabama capitol in Montgomery after a 5-day, 50-mile walk from Selma. Among those who were there that historic month of March were Grinnell students who brought home photos and stories for the College's student newspaper. Grinnell College alum and Board of Trustee member Hal Fuson '67 offers his first-hand account.
