Selma Review History students know Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from his speeches, those first bellowed words of “I Have a Dream” universally logged in memory banks. So it makes sense that King's voice is the gateway to the man in Selma, a stirring account of the marches that provoked the 1965 Voting Rights Act's passing. Actor David Oyelowo summons the power and courage to recreate King's calls to action, preaching to the disenfranchised with a Biblical roar. A one-man-show centered on the master orator would satisfy. Oyelowo is that rousing.
