Event Details

The 2022 MLK Celebration Steering committee made up of local community members has selected the award-winning film, Selma, to screen for the entire Winter Haven community to enjoy.

This captivating movie tells the story of Dr. Martine Luther King, Jr’s campaign to secure equal voting rights through a history-making march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965. Through the lens of director Ava DuVernay, this documentary film has sparked inspiration from multiple generations while highlighting how far our society has to go to achieve the vision of Dr. King. Concessions will be sold, and we will have a phenomenal moderator to help us facilitate thought-provoking conversations with participants.

This event will take place at the Historic Ritz Theatre on Thursday, January 13th, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
