Before reaching the bridge over the Alabama River, where Bloody Sunday went down, Oprah told those marching:

‘Every single person who was on that bridge is a hero.’

‘Martin Luther King as an idea, Selma as an idea and what can happen with strategy, with discipline and with love.’

Truly inspiring.
