50 years ago, 33 Canisius College students and three faculty members carved out a huge legacy for their school – and themselves – by marching the first nine miles from Selma to Montgomery, Ala., during a nonviolent freedom march seeking civil rights for all Americans.
Photos are from Canisius College archives, and many were taken by Lynn Ball of the Ottawa Citizens.
