Joanne Bland was an 11-year-old member of the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee and attended almost all of the mass meetings leading up to the Selma march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge that ended in the police riot known as "Bloody Sunday." She was already a trained and seasoned marcher for SNCC "I'm a Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee person! I was proud of my organization! I had gone to jail. I was a SNICK! I was a warrior!" She now conducts tours and tell her stories for civic and school groups wanting to reconnect with the history.
