Acclaimed Film 'Selma' Disappoints LBJ Historian
Page (1) of 1 - 12/24/14||
|The widely acclaimed movie Selma, about the 1965 Civil Rights movement, has disappointed at least one moviegoer: a leading historian of President Lyndon B. Johnson. Selma is based on the 1965 marches from the Alabama cities of Selma to Montgomery, led by King. LBJ Library Director Mark Updegrove said the film unfairly casts Johnson as a sort of composite character who represents the obstacles blacks faced in getting civil rights laws passed.
