Distinguished Professor Brian Landsberg shared his first-hand perspective of the 1965 Selma Voting Rights Campaign in his Sacramento Bee article, “Selma recollections from one who was there” on Jan. 10, 2015.

Landsberg was an attorney with the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice in 1964 and 1965, working in Selma on the case to enforce laws against racial discrimination in voting and public accommodations. The controversy surrounding the recent movie release “Selma” inspired his article.
