The following video is Good Morning America anchor Robin Robert’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, co-producer and Ava DuVernay, director of the critically acclaimed Golden Globe nominated movie ‘Selma’ opens today and showing everywhere Friday, January 9, 2015.
The Women of Selma
Women have always played a pivotal role in the crusade for racial equality, but history  for the most part, has relegated them to the sidelines. While Rosa Parks and Harriet Tubman are some of the more recognizable names, there have been countless women civil rights warriors who have put their blood, sweat and tears into a movement, that at times could be quite patriarchal in framing the achievement of mostly male civil rights leaders. Director Ava DuVernay balances the gender scale in her new movieSelma by shining a light on these fearless, everyday heroines.
