Selma offers profound and relevant lessons on leadership, power sharing, the role of faith, the value of white allies, and the role of the media for today's movement leaders. Perhaps the most profound lesson of the film was spoken by Oprah Winfrey on the Edmund Pettus Bridge.
Selma is so timely and it reminds us of how far we've come from 50 years ago to where we are now. As we protest as a people, let us honor the legacy of Dr. King and the thousands that marched before us by protesting in solidarity for one day we will see justice.

I have also recently viewed the movie in its entirety. It was not the final cut, but it was done enough for me to offer some thoughts about why this may be one of the most important films to be released in a while.
The idea of Important differs from Best: for American Sniper, Selma, and Unbroken, Best is beside the point. Each film is enormously engaging, highly recommended, and grounded in history on a large canvas.

My favorite AHA moment came from... my queen Oprah! And it is really quite simple why. She just reinforced and validated what I have been saying for years in the "having it all" debate.
