We in Luqman Nation saw and enjoyed the movie "Selma." We've been watching the response to the movie in socila media, and we're interested in the dichotomy of the reactions. On the one hand, you have folks who take issue with the innacurately portrayed releationship between MLK and LBJ. On the other hand you hvae folks who take issue with the innacurately perceived "passivity" of the Movement itself. And in the middle you have an amazing movie that does take some artistic license here and there, but stays true to the significance of Selma.
We'll try to talk about some of the socia issues faced during the time of Selma that we are STILL facing today.
And we'll talk about how popular artists aren't weighing in on the discussion. What's up with that?
Come join us tonight in Luqman Nation!
