Selma University has been officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places.


As of July 14, the university on Boynton Street was named in the historic places registry under Civil Rights Movement in Selma, Alabama MPS.


The application for this nomination was researched and prepared by Dr. Keith Hebert of Auburn University in collaboration with the President and staff at Selma University.


Hebert is one of two Auburn professors identifying marchers of the Bloody Sunday voting rights protest.

"This is extremely wonderful news and will continue to help open doors for our institution," President Stan Angion said in a statement.
