“On a cold, windy March morning 50 years ago I was a 29-year-old Newsweek correspondent, and I walked across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, just ahead of 525 marchers. Ahead, helmeted Alabama State Troopers and sheriff’s deputies blocked the highway. The Bloody Sunday confrontation that followed is the most searing memory from all my four decades of reporting the news—and it’s the most important event I ever covered.”
