After President Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act on August 6, 1965, nearly 7,000 African-Americans registered to vote in Dallas County, Alabama, resulting in the election defeat of the segregationist sheriff who led the Bloody Sunday attack on marchers. This museum displays items and stories relating to the voting rights campaign, from the beginning of the marches to the end of the fight. Hear firsthand accounts of these events from volunteer guides as they share memories of the struggle to gain the right to vote.
