Invites you to a showing of “Selma” at Vicarage Cottage Barn on Friday 19th February at 7.30 pm. (doors open 7.00 pm.)
SELMA is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous threemonth
period in 1965, when Dr Martin Luther King Jr led a dangerous campaign
to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition.
The epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, culminated in President Lyndon Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement.
Director Ava DuVernay tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Martin Luther King (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.
