Here’s a first official look at Selma, the upcoming drama movie directed by Ava Duvernay based on a script she wrote with Paul Webb:
“The story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic struggle to secure voting rights for all people – a dangerous and terrifying campaign that culminated with the epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, and led to President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a nonviolent leader. The people of Ferguson should follow his ways.
The cast includes David Oyelowo, Tom Wilkinson, Carmen Ejogo, Andre Holland, Alessandro Nivola, Dylan Baker, Giovanni Ribisi, Tessa Thompson, Colman Domingo, Stephen Root, Jeremy Strong, Tim Roth, and Oprah Winfrey.
The release date of Selma is set to January 9, 2015.
