From Selma to Ferguson The Dream Lives On: Inspiration from Selma Movie with Oprah Winfrey, Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo and More
David Oyelowo & Oprah Winfrey star in SELMA, in select theaters Christmas Day, everywhere January 9th. Visit the official site: http://SelmaMovie.com
One dream can truly change the world – when people come together for a greater vision! The film SELMA brings to life a relevant glimpse of the human experience through the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and is powerful and timely – with truths this world truly needs. SELMA is a must see and the message goes deeper into the spirit and far beyond what’s on the surface of the issues we faced then and today.
Why This Film is So Important: What happened in Selma we see happening today is more than a race issue – it’s a spirit issue. We are spirit having a human experience in unique, beautiful vessels that Love created. Darkness tries to keep us from seeking deeper truth and distracts us from seeing Light by having us focus on what we see – the temporary.
We’ve warred among ourselves since the beginning of history but the real issues in life are rooted in the greatest battle at hand – against darkness and principalities, for spirit and eternity. From the genesis of our world to the revelation we have now, it’s time to come back, to return to love and the way God meant our lives to be.
Thank you director Ava DuVernay, Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo and everyone involved for bringing us this inspiring story, life-piercing art and the vital message to live a dream of impact that focuses on a higher purpose. #Selma #forsuchatimeasThis #Glory
