Alabama senators are seeking to rename Selma's Edmund Pettus Bridge to the Journey to Freedom Bridge. The historic site in the voting rights movement bears the name of a Ku Klux Klan officer.

The bridge became a symbol of the fight for voting rights after marchers were beaten by state troopers in 1965.

It is Selma's most notable landmark, but its KKK association has drawn the anger of some in the majority black city. Pettus was a U.S senator, a Confederate general and a KKK grand dragon.
