Civil Rights Pilgrimage

Clip: Season 6 | 9m 23s

Every year, close to the anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and that of "Black Sunday" -- the day in 1965 when state troopers attacked protesters marching from Selma to Montgomery -- the nonpartisan Faith and Politics Institute in Washington organizes a trip to Alabama. The trip's purpose is to remind members of Congress what the civil rights movement was all about.
