Over the past weekend Oprah Winfrey held a “Legends of Selma” brunch to honor Civil Rights pioneers who helped pave the way for all of us.
On Thursday, Roland Martin and “NewsOne Now” shared some behind the scenes footage, exclusive interviews and highlights from the screening of the MLK biopic, “Selma.”

SELMA is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernay’s SELMA tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.
“Selma” is slated to premiere in theaters Friday, January 9th, 2015, with a Christmas Day limited release on December 25th.
Be sure to listen to “NewsOne Now” with Roland Martin, weekdays at 7 a.m. EST and watch at 9 a.m. EST on TV One.
