Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail

— West Jefferson Davis near Loveless School —

The foundation of the civil rights movement was based in the grassroots strength of West Montgomery. The historic black communities located along this route provided the leadership and support for over a decade.
Whether it was the clergymen, the local business owners, or the individual families, everyone played a role in the longevity and determination of the movement.

During the 13-month Montgomery Bus Boycott, community leaders encouraged Montgomery "everyday residents" to continue the long walks to work and home. The churches provided respite and support each week, reminding people that their suffering was for a higher cause.
