A passionate, compelling chronicle of the historic and bloody months in 1965, when black Americans in Selma, Alabama put their lives on the line to win the right to vote. In tight and effective dramatic sequences, director Ava DuVernay portrays the idealism, divisions, fortitude and personal anguish behind the moral triumph of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s crusade for
dignity.

In conjunction with SELMA, we are thrilled to present an exhibition of previously unpublished photos taken during the Selma to Montgomery march by Canadian photographer Lynn Ball.
