Fifty-five years ago"The March"   - Selma to Montgomery - a 54 mile stretch along the Jefferson Davis Highway - Captured in poignant black and white photographs by Stephen Somerstein - leaders of the movement and the throngs who sought full privileges of citizenship for all Americans, ending segregation and banning employment discrimination  finally delivered in the                           Civil Rights Act of 1964. 
One hundred years ago - Suffragettes began marching as early as 1913, campaigning for women's right to vote.  Before social media or even widespread use of radios, activists relied on "visuals" to communicate their message.  View artifacts, articles, and artwork - from sashes and buttons to sardonic cartoons and theatrical productions - used in the decades long campaign for                                    The 19th Amendment.
