The Historic Smoot Theatre
West Virginia University at Parkersburg and the Historic Smoot Theatre will host a showing of “Selma,” directed by Ava DuVernay.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. leads a dangerous campaign for equal voting rights for African Americans in Alabama, but ultimately promotes a change that forever alters history. The march from Selma to Montgomery, Dr. King’s speech at Alabama’s state capital, and the Voting Rights Act signing become some of the most significant victories in the civil rights movement.
A panel discussion will follow the film.
Tickets are free to WVU Parkersburg students who present a current, valid student ID and $5 for the general public.
