Covington, Georgia will be buzzing with activity later this month with the filming of Selma.

The movie centers around Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s voting rights campaign in 1965 in Selma, Alabama. Intense Civil Rights battles took place in Selma for equal African-American voting rights which culminated in three planned marches from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Only the last march actually made it all the way to Montgomery. Two marches were personally led by Martin Luther King Jr., and the successful march took 4 days to span 50 miles. The march started out with 8,000 people, then reduced to 300 by court order, but 25,000 people were in the final leg where King delivered his speech “How Long, Not Long”.
