David Oyelowo is powerful as Martin Luther King Jr—you can watch the movie, SELMA at no charge.

Selma, director Ava DuVernay’s biopic about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is free to watch and rent on streaming services for the month of June.

A Paramount says, “We hope this small gesture will encourage people throughout the country to examine our nation’s history and reflect on the ways that racial injustice has infected our society,”

Selma stars David Oyelowo as King and received a Best Picture Oscar nomination. In a four-star review, film critic Lou Lumenick called Selma Hollywood’s definitive depiction of the 1960s American civil rights movement.

You can find the film on all major services to rent or stream for free. Some of the services include Prime Video, Apple TV, Youtube, and Google Play.

Paramount’s move follows Warner Bros. making its 2019 drama “Just Mercy” available for no charge on rental platforms in the wake of protests over the death of George Floyd.

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
