Selma to Montgomery walked hundreds of people, ready to die for the rights of African-Americans.
Selma, shows a time when African-Americans could not vote.
Martin Luther King Jr. as well as many others set out to change the inequality of the law.
[No spoiler alerts] This movie will draw you in from the moment it starts. I felt as if I was there. And when I say rivers will fall from your eyes, I mean literally.
