: and as you know president obama along with george w. bush will be here. obama will be bringing his daughters sasha and malia. one of his messages he's hoping to impress upon the younger generation that it is up to them to fulfill their own obligation to help serve the next generation. and one obligation that has been the center piece of some discussions is the renaming potentially of the edmond pettus bridge. he was also someone who was a grand wizard of the ku klux klan klan. so now there is discussion on whether this would be fitting to rename the bridge. there have been some suggestions that it should be renamed the john lewis bridge of course after u.s. congressman john lewis. most local people are not having that conversation directly. they are having conversations about how to revitalize the city how does outside money come in here provide some jobs provide opportunities because it is a city that feels very forgotten. ana? >> fredricka, thank you for all that good information. fred will have live special coverage from selma tomorrow starting at 11:00 a.m. eastern here on cnn.
