Charles Desmond Attends 55th Annual Selma Bridge Crossing
Murphy, Hesse, Toomey & Lehane Advisory Board member, Charles Desmond has been among one of the tens of thousands of people to participate in the annual event for the past several years.
Every year on the first weekend in March, the Bridge Crossing Jubilee commemorates “Bloody Sunday” when African American demonstrators gathered to demand the right to vote and were brutally beaten. The event also commemorates the march from Selma to Montgomery led by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Thursday, February 27, 2020 marked the beginning of the 55th annual Selma Bridge crossing. The weekend was filled with 40 to 50 events recognizing historic moments in Selma’s past and honoring what demonstrators went through to claim the right to vote. Charles stated about the event, “Rep. John Lewis, who was severely injured in the 1965 march, urged this year’s marchers to ‘Speak up. Speak out. Get in the way. Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul of America.’ In these times of heightened national tensions, I urge all citizens of the Commonwealth to act on his words.”
