Selma, Alabama Automobile Accident Attorney
Selma, Alabama, most recognized for its part in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, is the county seat of Dallas County. It is in the Black Belt Region of South Central Alabama and is situated on the Alabama River. The 2010 U.S. Census Bureau recorded nearly 21,000 citizens of Selma.
A hotbed of activity during the Civil Rights Movement, one of Selma's most notable events was the Selma to Montgomery March in 1965. This historic march started in Selma on "Bloody Sunday" and culminated with 25,000 people entering Montgomery on the last day of March to press for equal voting rights for all citizens. The march was a key factor in the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which is federal legislation that passed in the summer of 1965 and prohibits racial discrimination during the voting process.
Selma was also an important arms manufacturing and iron ship building center during the Civil War.Selma Automobile Accident Statistics
