Today, Barack, the girls, and I traveled to Selma, Alabama.
There, 50 years ago this month, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Congressman John Lewis, and so many other unsung heroes crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge -- standing up for voting rights and full equality under the law for all Americans.
It was an honor and a privilege to stand on that bridge and commemorate the heroes from a half century ago. But the legacy of Selma is not simply about our history -- it's about the march that continues today.
So I hope you'll take a moment to hear what Barack had to say today in Selma.
First Lady Michelle Obama
