David Oyelowo urges Americans to ‘march against injustice’ as Dr. Martin Luther King in brand new Selma clip

By  | 

The Birmingham riots of 1963 might have triggered the US government to put through the 1964 Civil Rights Act, but it was the Selma to Montgomery marches of 1965 that gave black people the right to vote.
And now that pivotal moment in American history is being played out on the big screen in new movie Selma, starring British actor David Oyelowo in the role of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
In an exclusive clip from the film, Dr. King can been seen speaking to journalists about the need for US citizens of all races and gender to unite against injustice.

‘While rageful violence continues towards the unarmed people of Selma while they are assaulted with tear gas and batons like they are an enemy in a war,’ the civil rights leader says.Movement: Martin Luther King and his civil rights marchers head for Montgomery on March 21, 1965, during the five day walk to protest voting laws
