451 Delaware Ave., Delmar NY 12054

Selma (128 minutes, 2014), is a historical drama film directed by Ava DuVernay and written by Paul Webb.  This film  commemorated the 50th anniversary of the 1965 civil rights march from Selma,   to Montgomery, Alabama. The film highlights the courage of the  marchers as they withstood racist and violent attacks by the police. This film tells the story of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s  struggle  to secure voting rights for all people. This was a dangerous and terrifying   campaign that culminated with the epic march from Selma to Montgomery,  and ultimately led to President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.    Trailer for the film.  A discussion will follow the film.  Information:  518-466-1192
