Mr. Martin,

the youngest photographer at The Birmingham News,

was one of the few photographers on the ground

in Selma on March 7, 1965,

known as Bloody Sunday,

when state troopers violently

beat back peaceful marchers

at the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

 

Here is the moment before the confrontation.
