Civil Rights Movement

The year was 1965, and the Civil Rights movement is at its peak. In Selma, you might call this the hot point of all the commotion and the birthplace of the movement that eventually led to the Voting Rights Act of the same year. After a particularly brutal and bloody confrontation between demonstrators and authorities, coined Bloody Sunday, Martin Luther King, Jr. led a march to the now famous Edmund Pettis Bridge, and onward to Montgomery. This road and the trail they walked are now a national historic landmark and known as the Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights Trail.

A Strong Economy

One of the key factors to consider when looking at moving to a new place is the local economy of the surrounding area and the opportunities that might be available to you for professional employment. Luckily, Selma has this in spades, and with industries like International Paper, Bush Hog, American Apparel, and LaBour, there are plenty of corporate headquarters and places of manufacturing that offer livable wages and great benefits. Known commonly as the “Queen City of the Black Belt,” Selma is the gateway to regional retail, medical facilities, employment, and culture for a wider four-county area.
