This #movie is so on time for the state our country is in. #blacklivesmatter @oprah SELMA chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. #MartinLutherKing, 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 #civilrights movement.
