WTOP on the Selma Project

WTOP reports on #SelmaForStudents:

D.C. Public Schools students will have the chance to see the Academy Award-nominated movie “Selma” thanks to private donations and the help of a local film festival.

The March on Washington Film Festival has raised $75,000 to send students in grade 8 through 12 to see the movie, which documents the voting rights marches of 1965 in Alabama and centers on the role Martin Luther King Jr. played in organizing those protests.
