    The people of Selma organized the march of 1965 to get their civil rights. They were planning to go through the whole downtown Selma when troopers stopped them at the end of the Edmund Pettus Bridge. At the end of the bridge the activist were sprayed with tear gas, and they were abused by troopers. While all of this was happening it was being broadcasted live on tv. Five months later President Johnson allowed black people to vote. People were celebrating on March 8th, 2015 the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday and President Obama was leading the crowd with George Bush and his wife Laura, as well as a couple civil rights leaders. John Lewis is now a U.S represenative.

    Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year begins on February 19th. This year it is the year of the goat or sheep. Either one is fine because the Chinese character Yang translates to both. People born in the years 2003, 1991,1979 etc. have calm, gentle, and creative traits, etc. People who celebrate this holiday cook special meals and 3.2 billion people travel.

    Civil Rights activists were marching to the state capital in Montgomery Alabama. The world found out about it because "Bloody Sunday" was on a broadcast live on T.V. When the activists got toward the end of their march, state troopers were waiting for them. When they refused to move, fifty got beaten, and ended up in the hospital. Eight days later, the President formed a vote for Civil Rights for blacks. Barrack Obama led the march. People were celebrating the Civil Rights that they had received, in honor of the people who formed the original march. John Lewis now is the U.S. Representative for Georgia's 5th congressional district.

    The Chinese New Year begins on February 19th. They will be welcoming the year of the goat AND the sheep. They think either one is fine. People who are Chinese have huge, traditional meals with family. The significance of the food that they eat is that chicken represents a long life, spring rolls look like gold bars, which represents wealth and prosperity, and many other foods represent many different things. It is the year of the goat and sheep, because Chinese people think that either animal is fine. Two prediction made by experts this year is that it will be a great year, and another is that it will be a terrible year.
