Dr Miles Munroe

This is a motivating, provocative look at the awesome potential trapped within you, waiting to be realized. This book will cause you to be uncomfortable with your present state of accomplishment and dissatisfied with resting on your past success.

Oprah Winfrey, Cuba Gooding Jr.

We meet Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1964, moments before his acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo. He’s practicing, reciting key phrases in the mirror, working on his ascot. The speech is done, he’ll deliver it with his typical Baptist fervor, it’s the ascot he’s concerned about. He doesn’t want to look overly sophisticated, or above his cause. His wife Coretta (Carmen Ejogo) is there, assuring him he’ll be fine. King is fully aware of the power of his words, his presence, and we immediately become fascinated by this man’s thoughtfulness of presence. He has to be self-conscious, especially if he’s an audible figurehead amidst one of the most racially contentious and frankly quite scary watershed moments in America.

Jump to his failed initial talks with President Lyndon Johnson (Tom Wilkinson, in a strikingly unattractive performance). King wants voting rights, and an affirmative push against backwoods garbage policies that restrict blacks from voting. Johnson hears these complaints, and yet he assumes his signing of the Civil Rights Act of ’64 should have sufficed for King, and it’s just not the right time for more race issues. King must act, and in that moment, he sets in motion what would become a peak moment in his career — the epic 1965 march from Selma, Alabama to the state’s capital in Montgomery. The entire account will leave your heart outside your chest.

Selma is a passionate and utterly important historical recounting, unimpeachable for its modern relevancy, and moving in its cinematic telling. It’s an important work, not just about the civil rights movement, but about televisual communications and what it means to be black in America. Selma isn’t a blustery Hollywood history lesson (despite collages, literal sermonizing, and some of the biggest blowhard Southern caricatures you’ll find on screen). It’s a balance between emotional remembrance and startling fact. The film’s tabbed by actual FBI documents that placed King and others during the march. It gives the film credibility, while frighteningly reminding that King, a peacemaker, was under surveillance as a rabble-rouser.

Waits Gault Wise Family Ticker | Stay tuned to details for the 2015 WGW family reunion FOOD FOR THOUGHT:Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson
