Selma to Montgomery National Historic TrailIn December 1965, a city of tents appeared on this site. The temporary shelters were homes for evicted black sharecropper families. These farmers worked and lived their lives on white-owned farms in Lowndes County. But when they dared to register to vote, following passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, white landowners ran them from their homes and livelihood.
