In another reminder of my cluelessness, I learned today that David Oyelowo & Oprah Winfrey star in the movie Selma, that is opening on Christmas Day.
The trailer below looks terrific, and this review at Vox reinforces that belief. Unfortunately, the official site for the movie doesn’t have anything else besides the trailer as of today.
I’ll add this post to The Best Websites For Learning About Martin Luther King.
In the past, I’ve sometimes used short clips from another movie about King, Boycott, in when training about organizing , but it’s been awhile, and I can’t really remember how good it is. You can see trailers for that film here.
Selma becomes the third film in the past fourteen months about fighters for social justice — I’ve previously posted about Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom and Cesar Chavez.
