In Selma, Alabama, a public forum relating to the Edmund Pettus Bridge lighting upgrade project will take place at the Tabernacle Baptist Church on April 18 at 6 p.m. The bridge is best known for being the site of a historic 1965 Civil Rights Movement known as Bloody Sunday.
Lighting Selma, the non-profit organization that is raising money for the bridge relighting, reports that in 2020, HLB Lighting Design prioritized the Edmund Pettus Bridge project and offered to do all the design work free of charge. HLB then invited other companies to join the project, all offering their impressive services pro bono as well. Those partners include:
Lumenpulse designs and manufactures high-performance and sustainable LED solutions for urban environments.
ETC provides innovative lighting and rigging solutions.
Barbizon specializes in the integration of lighting and control equipment for civic environments and architecture.
And now, due to the generosity of these companies, the only cost remaining to make this project a reality is the cost of some of the equipment and the cost of hiring a contractor to install the new lighting system onto the Bridge.
