Norman Rotert was a young priest in March, 1965, when "Bloody Sunday" happened. On that date, March 7, 1965, 600 civil rights marchers were attacked by state and local police with billy clubs and tear gas in Selma, Alabama.
Father Rotert determined he had to go to Selma. In this video, Father Rotert describes his trip and his reaction to the inauguration of the nation's first African American president. He made the remarks during a program sponsored by the Center for Practical Bioethics on Martin Luther King's Birthday, January 19, 2009.
