Movie Review by Harriet C. Maddox

Selma Movie poster - smallRun to see the movie!!!! 

“Selma” is the BEST movie that I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of flicks!  History does not repeat itself but it sure as Hell rhymes.  Here it is 2015 and it is a reminder of this country’s crazy history that is still going on down the same path.  Make sure your fraternities, sororities, churches, synagogues, mosques, whatever organizations to which you belong, that the members go see the movie.  When the movie was over I could not remember if this was the year 1965 or 2015 because it was that realistic!!!  And, it was that relevant to what is happening now.  This movie should be a MUST SEE for every high school curriculum in the USA and around the world.  AND ABOVE ALL  VOTE!  All of those people; black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American, Southern Pacific Islanders, etc. helped to make things right as people from all backgrounds are doing now.  EVERYONE go see your American history!


I am a former teacher, marketing representative, labor negotiator and small business owner. As a black man born and raised in New York City I learned how to survive in the "neighborhood" and in business. Hearing about and witnessing the trials, tribulations, hopes and fears of my extended family and the people in their lives helped mold my life. Helping others with their own life journeys is my goal.
