The year is 1965. The South has just been desegregated, but discrimination is still making civil rights hard to come by. In a world where African Americans cannot register to vote, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has one last plan. He will march on Selma, Alabama, one of the greatest strongholds of racism in America. Will peaceful protests overcome hatred, or will violence and cruelty prevail? And when things get ugly, can King still band together a nation to fight against racial prejudice?
Starring David Oyelowo, Tom Wilkinson, Tim Roth, Oprah Winfrey, and Cuba Gooding Jr., Selma shows the power of a community standing together against injustice. This movie is available on demand now and on DVD and Bluray May 5!
