Liz and I went to the movies yesterday and saw, Selma. The movie is about Martin Luther King’s (MLK) famous campaign for equal voting rights, marching from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965.
I truly love watching movies based on true and major historic events – to freshen up one’s memory about the history, and to be reminded about its importance, especially today when various countries are struggling in political, social, and individual ways. I checked with SF for you Swedes who are reading this, and the movie comes out March 6 in Sweden so check it out then! Tip. Tip.
Just a about a week ago, Liz and I stood where MLK stood when he had his I Have a Dream speech at Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. Selma came out just a few days ago, and on Monday is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – a holiday marked on the third Monday of January each year, which is around the time of MLK’s birthday, January 15. Let’s check out what the movie looked like. All pictures are taken from imdb where you also can read more about the movie. Find it here.
