Everyone, and I mean every adult and teenager needs to see Selma.
This important film shows us the historic relevance of a movement AND how an ism, in the case racism, divides us. AND how, with intelligent peaceful persistence- We can effect change.
In thinking about today or 50 years ago, this film serves as a reminder that social justice takes conscientious effort. Today our need may be even greater as we also battle apathy and extremism.
It’s an easy thing to discriminate against that which we don’t identify with. Regardless of whether we agree with each other we can love each other, it just takes practice.
After you’ve seen it let’s have a conversation about what we are going to do about racism and all isms. Social justice for all.
P.s. – The cinematography is beautiful.
