Black History Month Film Series: Selma

Black History Month Film Series: Selma

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Although the Civil Rights Act of 1964 legally desegregated the South, discrimination was still rampant in certain areas, making it very difficult for blacks to register to vote. In 1965, an Alabama city became the battleground in the fight for suffrage. Despite violent opposition, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his followers pressed forward on an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, and their efforts culminated in President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

128 minutes. Rated PG-13 for disturbing thematic material including violence, a suggestive moment, and brief strong language
