The film is based on the 1965 voting rights marches from Selma to Montgomery led by Dr. King and other civil rights leaders.

The march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the Civil Rights Movement. Film run time: 128 minutes
