Host Adriane Harden and Co-Host Tiana Ferrell will join Al Sharpton with National Action Network, Rev. Samuel Mosteller, GA State Unit President to the SCLC, and others for the Annual March over the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama.  Selma, Al) In 1965, a march for voting rights was brutally attacked at the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Now known as "Bloody Sunday," the civil rights activists regrouped and made the march to Montgomery. The Selma to Montgomery march forced the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.  More than four decades later, these rights are being attacked and curtailed across the country. Civil rights, labor and immigrant rights groups are marching again from Selma to Montgomery. In Atlanta, groups such as National Action Network, Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR), the Atlanta Labor Council and Southern Christian Leadership Council (SCLC) are mobilizing participation in the march  and the concluding rally in Montgomery on Friday, March 9.
