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.
