Black Film Club: Selma

Ages: 10-18 years old

Ava Duvernay's film, Selma, tells the story of the civil rights leaders and their allies who staged three protest marches in Alabama, leading to Congress’s passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (VRA). Released in 2014, the Oscar-nominated feature film follows the courageous journey of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a young John Lewis, and other Civil Rights leaders as they demand voting rights. Selma shines a light on institutionalized voter suppression and tactics used by state, local, and federal government officials, the FBI, law enforcement, community members, and homegrown terrorist organizations to block Black citizens’ access. This course is designed by ARRAY 101 to provide a supportive environment to guide the viewing of the film, deepen the social conversation, and explore systemic injustice. The lessons taught by Selma are needed today as much as they were in 1965.
