Ava DuVernay's powerful film chronicles the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement.
