A friend and I saw the late afternoon showing of the movie Selma at the Ward Theater today (1/19/15).

The movie tells the events of African-Americans trying to register to vote in the of town Selma, Alabama in 1965 and when they couldn't they try to organize marches with the help of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who just had just gotten the Nobel Peace Prize the year before and has the ear of President Johnson at times.
