Jammin’ 105.7 & DJ Thump take today to celebrate the life and legacy of Annie Lee Cooper!

The Selma, Alabama native played a crucial part during the 1965 Selma Voting Rights Movement. Cooper’s history garnered people’s attention when Oprah Winfrey played her in the 2014 Oscar-nominated film Selma.

While many remember Cooper for punching Alabama Sheriff Jim Clark in the face, many remember for her activism. Cooper passed away in November 2010 at the age of 100.
