Film Screening: Selma

In honor of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we will be screening the film Selma at 1:00 p.m. and again at 5:30 p.m.  Please join us for this historical account of the March on Selma - a critical event from the Civil Rights Movement (Rated PG-13).

From imdb.com:

The unforgettable true story 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 signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernay's "Selma" tells the story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.—Miss W J Mcdermott
