This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Selma Bridge crossing that was portrayed in the Oscar nominated film, Selma, and SiriusXM is taking part in this commemorative event. On Friday, Mark Thompson will moderate a mock trial and then turn the floor over to special guests including Rev. William Barber, Rep. Maxine Waters, and many more as they discuss 50 years after Selma. Then, all weekend long SiriusXM Progress will air Selma Bloody Sunday March – an hour long special taken from a 2006 discussion between Mark Thompson and Rep. John Lewis as they marched from to the very spot where Lewis was beaten unconscious by Alabama State Troopers.
