    Fifty years later, the scene from Selma's Bloody Sunday march still leaves a dark stain on United States history. Four months from its anniversary commemoration, the NAACP says the march for voting rights is not yet finished.

    As Congress prepares to go back into session, thousands are expected to put their feet to the pavement this summer to join the NAACP in "America's Journey for Justice" to demand federal protection of civil rights for all Americans.

    The march will kick off Saturday at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge, the setting for Selma's Bloody Sunday, and will culminate in a rally at the nation's Capitol where they plan to shout: "Our lives, our votes, our jobs, our schools matter."
