A key civil rights activist and organizer in the 1965 Selma marches died Wednesday.
Amelia Boynton Robinson died after being hospitalized for a massive stroke last month. She was 104 years old.
Boynton Robinson began her activism work helping her mother pass out voter registration information to women after lawmakers ratified the 19th amendment, which ensured women's right to vote.
