Selma is 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. The film also stars Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Common, Dylan Baker and more.
