Paramount Pictures has made the historical SELMA movie directed by our girl Ava DuVernay free to rent.

The movie company is encouraging people to reflect on racial injustice in America following the killing of George Floyd.

The studios is offering free rentals of its 2014 film Selma, which follows Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in a bid to secure equal voting rights for black Americans. The first demonstration was stopped early by law enforcement who confronted and beat protestors in an event that came to be known as “Bloody Sunday.”

“We’ve gotta understand where we’ve been to strategize where we’re going. History helps us create the blueprint. Onward,”  Ava tweeted on Friday.
