Today is Martin Lurther King Day and in commemoration, Oprah Winfrey and other stars from the movie Selma marched with hundreds on Sunday ahead of Martin Luther King Jr. holiday to recall the civil rights struggles of the 1960s.
Winfrey, a producer of Selma who also had a role, helped lead the march with the film’s director, Ava DuVernay, actor David Oyelowo, who portrayed King in the movie, and the rapper Common.
They and others marched from Selma City Hall to the city’s Edmund Pettus Bridge, where civil rights protesters were beaten and tear-gassed by officers in 1965.
