For what seems like forever, people have wondered when the big production film featuring Martin Luther King would enter our lives. Our hero in the struggle, Malcolm X, got a Spike Lee joint in 1992 so surely MLK couldn’t have been far behind right? Wrong.
Fret no more though because the feature film focused on the life of our Leader in the Civil Rights Struggle is coming. Given a Januayr 9, 2015 release date, the Ava Duvernay-directed biopic drops less than a week before the epic activist’s birthday. Featuring David Oyelowo as Dr. King, Carmen Ejogo as Coretta Scott King and other big names such as Oprah Winfrey, Lorraine Toussaint and Cuba Gooding Jr., the film looks like its going to be just the film we’ve been waiting so many years for!
