March 28th 1965; Dr Martin Luther King has taken a crowd of nearly 25,000 people to the steps of the state capital of Montgomery, Alabama to highlight black grievances. The procession marks the end of a five-day march which started in Selma and it brought to a close a month of civil rights protests in Alabama. Troops policed the roads surrounding the capital and army helicopters hovered overhead as the crowd swelled to nearly 25,000. Dr King, who addressed the protesters from a podium in the square, described the trek as "one of the greatest marches in the history of America. Our aim is not to humiliate and defeat the white man, but to win his friendship and understanding."
