Ava DuVernay‘s fist-pumping biopic Selma is being released nationwide tomorrow. As a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama for voting rights in 1965, it’s a reverent and comprehensive but still incendiary recounting with unquestionable modern day parallels and a standout performance from David Oyelowo as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In honor of the March’s 50th anniversary, we’ve put together a slideshow of photos taken during the actual march. Check it out below.
