Lynda Blackmon Lowery

Turning 15 on the Road to Freedom

Lynda Blackmon Lowery began her fight for civil rights in Selma, when activists organized Lowery and other area children and teenagers to participate in the civil rights movement. In the front lines of the struggle, the young Lowery was the youngest marcher to walk every step of the successful infamous March from Selma to Montgomery. A fascinating story that all should hear!
