Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with a free screening of Ava DuVernay’s Oscar-winning drama, Selma!
Selma is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernay’s Oscar-winning Selma tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo, delivering an unforgettable performance) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history. Also starring Carmen Ejogo, Colman Domingo and Oprah Winfrey. (Dir. by Ava DuVernay, 2014, USA, 127 mins., Rated PG-13)
