This marker honoring murdered civil rights activist Viola Liuzzo is located on U.S. Highway 80, about 20 miles east of Selma, Dallas County. It was erected in 1991 at the site where she was shot and killed by members of the Ku Klux Klan on March 25, 1965, after the Selma to Montgomery March. The memorial is one of several on the National Park Service's Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail.
