Online - Black History Month Movie Club: Selma (2014)
For teens in grades 7-12. Celebrate Black History Month this February by watching these historical dramas from Black directors. We will stream these films over Zoom, then host a brief discussion after the movie is over!
Selma, from director Ava DuVernay depicts the events of, and leading up to, the 1965 Selma to Montgomery voting rights marches, which were led - in part - by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr (portrayed here by David Oyelowo). These marches drew national attention to the desire of Black Americans to secure the right to vote and were integral to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, but organizing and carrying them out were not without their obstacles.
Remember to check out our Read Woke challenge on Beanstack for books in a similar vein.
