AP PHOTOS: Anniversary of 'Bloody Sunday' march
By The Associated PressAssociated Press
The event commemorates the "Bloody Sunday" beating of voting rights marchers - including a young Lewis - by state troopers as they began a march to Montgomery in March 1965.
The 50-mile march prompted Congress to pass the Voting Rights Act that struck down impediments to voting by African-Americans and ended all-white rule in the South.
Here's a look at photos from the march.
