Abstract

Narratives are based on a certain memory or recollection of the past and in turn by their presentation, or what most memory scholars term their re-presentation of the past. Grounded in the work of Walter Fisher and Carole Blair on narrative analysis and public memory respectively, this study will provide a reading of the commemorative practices related to the 1965 Selma to Montgomery March.
