I was wondering if the song "Viola Lee Blues" had anything to do with the
Michigan housewife that travelled down to Selma, AL. in March of 1965 to
participate in the march for civil rights for blacks, and was killed?

You're thinking of Viola Liuzzo.  Why I remember that from 40 years ago I do
not know, but that's the name.

The song "Viola Lee Blues" originated many years earlier.

Yeah, the first recording was way back in the 1920s.
