"SPLC marks 50th anniversary of Voting Rights Act by making documentary available to civic, student groups
The Teaching Tolerance film encourages voting and civic engagement by recounting the dramatic story of the students and teachers who braved intimidation, violence and arrest during the campaign for equality in Selma.
The SPLC is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act by making its new documentary film, Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot available for community screenings by civic and student groups across the country.
The film, which tells the true story of the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery voting rights march, can be ordered free of charge for events such as voter registration drives, get-out-the-vote efforts and community screenings. Supplemental materials, including a community screening guide and a trailer, are also available."GO TO:
