  • Not.

  • Thousands of people came to Selma aroused by Sunday's brutal acts exacted by officials with the city of Selma in the state of Alabama.

  • I felt if I had not led the march, pent up emotions and inner tensions would have led to an uncontrollable retaliatory situation a violent situation on both sides.

  • It seems basic to our constitutional principles that the extent of the right to assemble demonstrate in March along the highway in a peaceful manner ought to be commiserated with the enormity of the wrongs that are being protested and petitioned against.

  • In this case, the wrong are enormous.

  • Therefore, the extent of the right to demonstrate in an estimated five day march from Selma to Montgomery has been approved accordingly.

  • Thank God there's no further business with this court.

  • These proceedings are concluded with our thanks to the living.

  • Good day, Yeah.

I will now hear testimony from the plaintiffs.
