Matinee Film: SELMA

 

Travel back to Selma, Alabama, 1964, when demonstrating for civil rights itself was  "not done" in many places in the United States. If nonviolent protests were attempted, they were met with force by the governing authorities.  This film tells the story of Martin Luther King, Jr. and a core of dedicated followers who risked everything to carry their nonviolent message of racial equality into uncharted territory.

Parents are encouraged to accompany teens or mature tweens for ongoing conversation. Discussion will follow the screening. The film is PG-13 and runs 128 minutes.
