Churchgoers at the Brown Chapel AME Church in Selma, Alabama, turned their backs on presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Sunday, March 1, as he made remarks on the 55th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday”.
Bloomberg can be seen in these videos speaking before the crowd at the church on Sunday. Several Democratic candidates were also reportedly set to march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge later in the day to remember the “bloody Sunday” in 1965, when police and protesters clashed during civil rights protests in Selma.
