Project aims to ID voting rights marchers of ‘Bloody Sunday’

SELMA, Ala. (AP) — The world knows the names of John Lewis and a few more of the voting rights demonstrators who walked across Selma’s Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965 only to be attacked by Alabama state troopers on  “Bloody Sunday.”

A new project aims to identify more of the hundreds of people who were involved in the protest.

Two Auburn University professors working with students have established a Facebook page where people can look through photographs of March 7, 1965, and identify themselves or others.

The page went online, and some people already have been identified.
