Obama's Former Pastor Invited to Selma March

SELMA, Ala. (AP) - President Barack Obama's former Chicago
pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is among the guests invited to
attend a Selma event in March commemorating the 44th anniversary of
"Bloody Sunday."

Obama's selection for U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder, was also among those invited to a unity breakfast March 8 prior to the annual Bridge Crossing Jubilee.

Oranizers had not confirmed if either could attend.

The theme for the event this year is "The Bridge to the White House." The planning committee counted the "Bloody Sunday" attack on marchers at the Edmund Pettus Bridge 44 years ago as a stepping stone for Obama's election as the nation's 44th president.
