MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Alabama State University held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday for Montgomery's Selma to Montgomery March National Park Service Interpretive Center.

The new center will tell the Montgomery side of the historic 1965 Selma to Montgomery Voting Rights March, which was led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It will reflect the final days of the march and the students who were involved.

"We are thankful to tell the story of how the world was changed to generations unborn," said ASU President Gwendolyn Boyd.

This event was held on campus in front of the scoreboard at the new Hornet Stadium. This is at the corner of Harris Way and North University Drive and the archway near Interstate 85.

Boyd along with National Park Superintendent Taylor, Mayor Strange and Student Government President Dubose gathered to conduct the ceremony.
