Synopsis: Although the Civil Rights Act of 1964 legally desegregated the South, discrimination was still rampant in certain areas, making it very difficult for blacks to register to vote. In 1965, an Alabama city became the battleground in the fight for suffrage. Despite violent opposition, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his followers pressed forward on an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, and their efforts culminated in President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

Release Date: November 11, 2017 | Length: 128 min | Genre: Biography, Drama, History | MPAA Rating: Rated PG-13 for disturbing thematic material including violence, a suggestive moment, and brief strong language.

Note: Premiered at the 2017 AFI Fest.
