ASU chosen for center for voting rights trail

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The National Park Service has selected the Alabama State University campus in Montgomery for the third and final interpretive center along the Selma-to-Montgomery national voting rights trail.

Officials from the university and the Park Service announced the location Tuesday afternoon. The center will be across the street from the home where civil rights leader Ralph Abernathy lived.

Alabama State competed for the interpretive center with Mt. Zion AME Church and a site on Montgomery's west side where the marchers stopped for their last night before completing the 50-mile march to the Capitol in 1965.

The other locations for interpretive centers are in Selma and Lowndes County.
