Confrontation at the Bridge

Confrontation at the Bridge is a silkscreen print by Jacob Lawrence.  The print, released in 1974, depicts the Civil Rights March in Selma, Ala., on March 7, 1965, in which a group of nonviolent protestors marching for voting rights faced police violence when they reached the end of the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The event is now known as Bloody Sunday.
