Free Screening of the Film, ‘Selma’
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Clark presents a free screening of the film, ‘Selma’ on Monday, January 18, at 2 p.m. in the Michael Conforti Pavilion. The film tells the true story of the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, culminated in President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Directed by Ava DuVernay and starring David Oyelowo, ‘Selma’ was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture. The film is rated PG-13. The Clark’s galleries are also open that day. Regular admission will be charged. The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Mass. For more information, visit clarkart.edu or call 413-458-2303.
