The ShowRoom celebrates Black History Month with a one night only screening of SELMA, selected by Ed Johnson, who will introduce the film.
“Selma,” as in Alabama, the place where segregation in the South was at its worst, leading to a march that ended in violence, forcing a famous statement by President Lyndon B. Johnson that ultimately led to the signing of the Voting Rights Act.
