WATCH: ‘SELMA’ Trailer

Director by Ava DuVernay and written by Paul Webb, SELMA, chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. King led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights.

JET is looking forward to it, especially after a recent interview we did with Common who appears in the film and shared: “I’m really enthused about the film. It’s specifically about that time and how radical they had to be and how tough the situation was.”

The film opens in select theaters on December 25 and worldwide, January 9, 2015.
