"Freedom Journey 1965: Photographs of the Selma to Montgomery March" is opening at the New-York Historical Society on Friday. It follows the pivotal Civil Rights march through the photographs of Stephen Somerstein.
Somerstein was a 24-year-old picture editor at his college newspaper in New York. He went to Alabama in January 1965 to document the five-day, 54-mile march. Somerstein took over 400 photographs. Those in the exhibition include images of marchers being cheered by black people and jeered by whites.
Selma City Council members have extended the city's moratorium on new payday loan stores and may extend a ban on issuing new liquor licenses.
Officials voted Tuesday to extend the payday loan store ban for six months. Councilman Michael Johnson says he's researching future restrictions on the businesses, including requiring a certain distance between locations.
