At the age of 15, Lynda Lowrey was one of the youngest protesters to complete the historic march from Selma to Montgomery alongside Martin Luther King Jr. She was only 13 when she started training in King’s nonviolent philosophy, and 14 when she marched on the Edmund Pettus Bridge during Selma's Bloody Sunday.

Lowrey shared her story with a small crowd of university students at Selma Community Church in commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of Sunday, Bloody Sunday.
