President Obama's controversial former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, is headed to Alabama.
Wright will speak Thursday evening at an event in Selma marking the anniversary of the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery voting rights march.
Wright's fiery rhetoric threatened to derail Obama's bid for the White House last year.
The National Voting Rights Museum and Institute in Selma is sponsoring Wright's appearance. Critics of the visit include Alabama's lone black congressman, Democrat Artur Davis, who was Obama's state campaign chairman is is now running for governor.
