SELMA, Ala. (WIAT) — The post office in the city of Selma could have a new name soon. The House of Representatives passed a bill on Tuesday to name the facility after voting rights activist Amelia Boynton Robinson.

Robinson died last year at the age of 110. She became known as the matriarch of the voting rights movement.

The bill to rename the post office is being sponsored by Congresswoman Terri Sewell. It now heads to the Senate for vote.
