British News Crew Explores Civil Rights Progress in Selma
By George McDonald


From the West Alabama Newsroom--  A British television news crew is in Selma working on a story about the progress of civil rights in the country.

A crew from Independent Television News has been in town shooting video and interviewing people for the last few days.
They're asking people, What progress has been made since the civil rights movement of the sixties?

ITN U.S. News Correspondent Robert Moore says the feature will air in London on the eve of the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Junior's -- I Have a Dream speech.

"Next Wednesday is the 50th anniversary of that great speech in Washington," said Moore.

"And that's going to focus the attention of not just America, but the world's attention, on what progress has been made over the past five decades in terms of civil rights, particularly in the Deep South," he said.
