MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) — President Joe Biden is traveling to Alabama on March 5 to commemorate a crucial moment of the civil rights movement.

Biden will be in Selma to mark the 58th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” the day in 1965 when white police attacked Black voting rights marchers.

This will be Biden’s first visit to Selma as president. It is currently unknown if any other members of Biden’s administration will be in Selma to mark the occasion.

Last year, Vice President Kamala Harris, along with several other members of Biden’s administration, took part in the annual symbolic march across the bridge.

On March 7, 1965, Alabama state troopers beat and tear-gassed hundreds of demonstrators. The confrontation set the stage weeks later for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. to lead the massive Selma-to-Montgomery march for voting rights.
