Bloody Sunday and the Selma Marches Saturday, March 7, 2015 - 2:00pm

50 Years ago, March 7, 1965, peaceful demonstrators gathered in Selma, Alabama, to march to the state capital in Montgomery, Alabama.  Having crossed the Pettus Bridge in Selma, they were attacked by state and local police, many of whom were mounted, and  armed with billy  clubs and tear gas.  Television covered the attack as the demonstrators were severely beaten and dispersed.  A second march was aborted two days later, though without violence.  A third and successful march was carried out two weeks later on March 21.  But March 7 would forever be known as Bloody Sunday.  Join us as Professor Bonner, of the University of Maryland, discusses the significance of the marches and Bloody Sunday.  Both adults and teens are welcome to attend.

When Ford unveiled the Mustang at the 1964 New York Worlds Fair on April 17, 1964, America fell in love with it.  But many felt there was something lacking: a precision and high performance engine.  Carroll Shelby, who had a company devoted to upgrading standard models into high performance racing cars, took on that task, and unveiled his version in 1965.  Join us as Stephen Tapper, of the Mustang Club of Maryland, discusses the history of the Shelby Mustang.  Following Mr. Tapper’s presentation will be a Mustang Rally in the library’s parking lot.
