Screening a week before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, this biographical film on the late civil rights leader tells the story of the 1965 march he led from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to fight for equal voting rights. The drama, which was nominated for Best Picture at last year’s Oscars, stars David Oyelowo as MLK and Tim Roth as Gov. George C. Wallace, who pushed back against King and the movement. Wallace’s daughter Peggy Wallace Kennedy will be in attendance to share her personal account of race and politics and how her father came to see the error of his ways in the late ’70s.
