Really wonderful article in The Root by historian and “haute couture intellectual” Dr. Tanisha Ford (@soulistaphd on Twitter and Instagram) titled “Selma Costumes Reveal Class and Consciousness of the Movement.” The article looks at the film  about new film “Selma,” directed by Ava DuVernay, and costume design choices demonstrating attention to “class and consciousness”in the civil rights movement. The film stars David Oyelowo and Carmen Ejogo as Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King. Check out Dr. Ford’s article at the link, and I hope you will also see the important film by one of my very favorite directors.
