President Obama -- along with many others including civil rights activist and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) -- commemorated the 50th anniversary of the "Bloody Sunday" march in Selma, Alabama on Saturday. As we wrote earlier, the president delivered a remarkable address. But, the story of the day is told even better in photos. Here are a few.
