In recognition of the upcoming Martin Luther King Day holiday,Monday January 18, 2016, Homestead National Monument of America will show Sisters of Selma, a film about allies in the civil rights cause, at2 Homestead's Education Center.  

During the civil rights marches of 1965 in Selma, Alabama, a startling new group of leaders joined the battle for civil rights: Catholic nuns of all races. Nine nuns look back at the events that changed their lives and helped make Selma a turning point for Martin Luther King's movement and for all Americans.

"Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a time when we can reflect upon our nation's journey with civil rights. This film inspires that reflection," stated Superintendent Mark Engler.
