"If you saw it, you will not forget it, that Sunday afternoon in March 1965, when television brought into your home the stark horror taking place in Selma, Alabama…The television reports of this incredible mockery of democracy did more than any other mass medium to inspire millions of Americans to demand an end to this particular form of mistreatment and denial of black citizens’ rights."
