Almost 50 years ago, a Hartford man was part of an event that changed the course of the civil rights movement.  Leroy Moton was born in Selma, Alabama.  As a teenager, he worked with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  in Alabama. He told reporter Sara Karl one of the most difficult and powerful things he saw during that volatile time was the brutal murder of civil rights activist Viola Liuzzo. That murder, he says, had a profound impact on the movement, and on him.
