Alandria Hall may not have been born when civil rights protestors marched from Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery for voting rights, but she knows a lot about them. Thanks to the countless stories repeated by her parents and grandfather, Alandria has a deep appreciation of the sacrifice previous generations endured in their quest for equality.
"They told my brothers and me stories about the civil rights movement and the march repeatedly as children and young adults," Alandria said. "Although they themselves did not march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, they were determined to be a bridge and never let us forget the significance of its footprint."
Watch as Alandria reveals how she discovered the historic movement through history books and family stories.
