Obama thrills Selma crowds

Calling on what he calls the "Joshua Generation" to "finish the journey," Senator Barack Obama spoke to a massive crowd at Selma's Brown Chapel AME Church.

Obama compared the Selma march to Moses' journey through the desert only to be told he could not enter the "Promised Land." Describing the younger generation as the "Joshua Generation," he asked them to put on the struggle of the older civil rights fighters.
