In over a decade of great speeches by Barack Obama, and a legacy of great speeches as President of the United States, many are saying that President Barack Obama’s speech at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama on the 50th Anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” is one of his best and greatest.  President Obama paid tribute to the civil rights heroes and sheroes and talked bluntly about not getting engaged in voting.  President Obama paid tribute to the civil rights movement as being part of the best of America.  The President called about the progress that’s been made since 2015, but acknowledged the progress still to be made. And President Obama spoke forcefully about the efforts at limiting Americans voting rights; urging the Congress to reauthorize a strong Federal Voting Rights Act. Words that got former President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush to stand and applaud the President’s words.  Please enjoy watching the replay of one of President Obama’s greatest speeches.
