In 1965, the historic Selma March known as Bloody Sunday was a turning point in the Civil Rights Movement. John Lewis—now a revered U.S. Congressman, then a young student—co-led hundreds of peaceful marchers seeking voting rights for African Americans in the South. This is the first biographical film about Lewis, a respected legislator and elder statesman who continues to practice nonviolence in his determined fight for justice. The film will be followed by a presentation on ways the audience can get involved in the movement for racial justice today.
