In 1965, Selma, a small Alabama city, became a key battleground in the fight for suffrage. Despite violent opposition from the authorities and the city’s furious white population, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his followers pressed forward on an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, an effort which culminated in President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

There will be a post screening discussion about the film, chaired by a local speakers from the Harrow Black History Month group.
