Back Selma

Movie Synopsis

During a tense three month period in 1965, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. organized a movement for voting rights for African-Americans that faced violent opposition from racist oppressors. Surrounded by like-minded people of all races, King led a march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, and in the process, secured President Lyndon Johnson's signature on the history-making Voting Rights Act.

King's tenacity and bravery was tested at every turn. Some marchers gave their lives to secure representation for their brothers and sisters. The film is a profile in courage.
