Sheffield Hallam University preview for acclaimed civil rights drama

Have your say

Students at Sheffield Hallam University are to be given a special preview screening of a hard-hitting film which tells the story of Dr Martin Luther King’s fight for voting rights for African-Americans.

Selma tells the story of Dr King’s campaign, which culminated in the epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in March 1965.

The preview screening is in the university’s Void cinema in the Owen building on Saturday, January 31, at 11am and is one of only a handful of chances for people to see the film before its general release.

It is being held in partnership with Pathé and human rights organisation Journey to Justice and has been organised by staff in the Faculty of Development and Society.

Tickets are £7 each.
