Lynda Blackmon Lowery, a Selma native, is a Civil Rights activist and an award winning author, best known as the youngest foot soldier in the 1965 Voting Rights March  from Selma to Montgomery.  

Lowery grew up in segregated Selma, Alabama, where she was not allowed to enter white owned stores and only allowed to go to the library and movie theater on days labeled “for colored.”  Lynda was only 7 when her mother died.  Overhearing older people talk, she learned the color of her mother’s skin caused her tragic death because the local hospital admitted white people only.  

Her greatest influences of strength and guidance were her loving father and grandmother who raised her and her siblings to be determined, faithful and continue to fight for their rights as African Americans and human beings.
