Ava DuVernay hosts a special screening for David Oyelowo’s new film

They worked together on “Selma,” a  film which chronicles Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s quest to secure equal voting rights and “Middle of Nowhere” a movie which followed a medical student forced to reevaluate her life after her husband is incarcerated and have developed a great friendship over the years so it was no surprise DuVernay wanted to support Oyelowo.
