Gloria Rembert recommended a trip to the Pettus Bridge at Selma, Alabama. A celebration annually in March marks the 1965 Bloody Sunday march by civil rights demonstrators led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "It is an absolutely outstanding learning opportunity to teach about the movementů leading up the signing of the Voting Rights Act, and how a little town in Selma actually moved the country."
