By the time Lynda Blackmon Lowery was 14, she had been arrested 9 times in the struggle by black Americans for basic civil rights in the early 1960's. She was the youngest person to make the 5 day, 86 kilometer march with civil rights leader Martin Luther King Junior from Selma to Montgomery Alabama. She was among the protesters beaten by police and still bear the scars from stitches to her face and back of her head. Selma, the movie, is released in New Zealand this week. Lynda Blackmon Lowery talks about her experience, the power to change, and living each day of your life as a journey in history
