Former Civil Rights Battlegrounds Await Culmination Of Historic Election


SELMA, AL - NOVEMBER 01: Children play at the George Washington Carver Homes housing project next to the historic Brown Chapel AME Church (IN BACKGROUND) November 1, 2008 in Selma, Alabama. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. preached in the historic church which was a starting point for the Selma to Montgomery marches in 1965. The marches eventually led to the Voting Rights Act of 1965 ending voter disfranchisement against African-Americans. Americans are gearing up for the first presidential election featuring an African-American candidate, Democratic contender Sen. Barack Obama, who is running against Republican Sen. John McCain.
