On This Day - March 22, 1965
From The Times archive
When the civil rights march
which started on this day
reached Montgomery two days later,
Dr King addressed a crowd of 25,000
DR MARTIN LUTHER KING today set off from Selma, Alabama, at
the head of 4,000 civil rights demonstrators, on the Freedom March to the state
capital at Montgomery. Before the march started Dr King led the demonstrators in
Montgomery is hardly the promised land, but today the barriers of the last
fortnight were removed and the marchers made their final preparations under the
reassuring if not wholly benevolent, gaze of several hundred steel-helmeted
Those who made the attempted march two weeks ago and were repulsed with tear
gas, truncheons and clubs, required no reminder of the necessity for this
protection but, lest the nation forget, the discovery of at least four crude
bombs at Negro buildings 100 miles away at Birmingham, served the purpose. In
Montgomery a procession of 80 cars, led by Mr Robert Shelton, the Imperial
Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, wound its way through the streets this afternoon in
protest against the civil rights march.
In these dramatic circumstances the march was late in starting. An hour after he
should have stepped off at the head of several thousand marchers, Dr King
arrived at the Brown African Methodist Episcopalian chapel to deliver an
address. His audience had been there for some time listening to other words of
encouragement including some from Mr James Foreman of the student non- violent
coordinating committee, who promised that the police state of Alabama would be
done away with. “Hitler had his Storm Troopers: Wallace has his State Troopers,”
The march was described as the greatest demonstration for human dignity since
the emancipation proclamation.
