FIRST LOOK: David Oyelowo and Carmen Ejogo as MLK and Coretta Scott King in 'Selma'

00


"If it may be said of the slavery era that the white man took the world and gave the Negro Jesus, then it may be said of the Reconstruction era that the southern aristocracy took the world and gave the poor white man Jim Crow. And when his wrinkled stomach cried out for the food that his empty pockets could not provide, he ate Jim Crow. A psychological bird that told him that no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white man, better than the black man. And when his undernourished children cried out for the necessities that his low wages could not provide, he showed them Jim Crow. And his children, too, learned to feed upon it, their last outpost of psychological oblivion. Our whole campaign in Selma has been centered around the right to vote. In focusing the attention of the nation on the flagrant denial of that right, we are exposing the very origin, the root cause, of racial segregation in the Southland."

- Rev. Martin Luther King's final speech after the SELMA marches. Today I salute the 49th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act being signed into law, and the bravery and intelligence it took to make it so. #selmafilm

Wow. Bitter pill to swallow. This is definitely the new Jim Crow era.

damn.  I was looking and thinking how did they have the magazine out and printed and them...right there...at the same time.  I legit didn't know that that was not MLK and Coretta for a good 3 minutes of solid staring.

i know this is off topic, but I really Love this guy he is so cute too bad he is married! and to a (*white lady) I hope he is happy after all-

I also think its funny that these are African British actors playing the lives of famous AA's, so they have fake accents for these roles, well see I guess
