The Dallas County Voters League, an organisation comprised primarily of black men, began seeking avenues in the 1940s to gradually transform the oppressive environments in which they lived. The quiet, protracted Civil Rights struggle culminated in 1963 when black students from Hudson High School in Selma became pivotal participants in launching the public movement. The Selma campaign was in jeopardy in late 1964, so local leaders invited Martin Luther King to assist them. The rest, as they say, is history.
