While roaming the country and observing different places, I had the opportunity to capture the present version of America’s past. What do I mean by that? Here’s an example from Selma, AL.
Each year now, there is an annual bridge crossing Jubilee which takes place the first weekend in March at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge and is attended by 30,000 people! It is a street festival of music, art and history. In addition, the Jubilee is the celebration and commemoration of the right to vote and March from Selma to Montgomery. It also serves as a reunion for many of the Voting and Civil Rights participants.
The politics of seeing….bridging the gap.
