Due to the recent events that have been taking place involving police brutality among people of color, it is evident that we have entered a modern day Civil Rights movement.  And as if on Que, the highly-anticipated film, “Selma” is right around the corner for a worldly premiere.  What better way to celebrate the film along with all the other legends than by devoting an entire month to celebrate them for their sacrifices?

Oprah’s OWN has announced the 50th Year anniversary celebration honoring all Civil Rights legends following the premiere of “Selma.”  The film is going to center around the Civil Rights legend Martin Luther King Jr as he leads the marches from Selma to Montgomery to fight for the freedom of African-American citizens.

According to blackenterprise.com, the month-long celebration will include special television programming that will begin on New Year’s Day, as Tamron Hall hosts Race on The Oprah Winfrey Show with Tamron Hall, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Other special airings will include Oprah Prime on Jan. 4, when Oprah will commemorate the life of King and talk about the importance of the Selma marches.
