Clinton in Selma

President Clinton joined leading civil rights figures and several hundred spectators to pay tribute to marchers who were beaten while crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, March 7, 1965. Clinton walked across the bridge today with Coretta Scott King, the widow of Rev. Martin Luther King, and Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., who was badly injured in the 1965 march. We hear excerpts from today's remarks by the president.
