We caught up with David Oyelowo at the 45th NAACP Image Awards Nomination Press Conference in Pasedena, CA where he talks to our correspondent Jacinta Ducreay about the role he is playing as Dr. King in a film called Selma, slated to be released later this year. Check out the interview above.
The NAACP Image Awards celebrates the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film and also honors individuals or groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors. Winners will be voted upon by NAACP members and announced when the envelopes are opened on Friday, February 21 during the Awards Ceremony for non-televised categories. The remaining categories will be announced LIVE on stage during the two-hour star-studded TV One telecast on Saturday, February 22 (9:00 p.m. ET/PT tape-delayed). The telecast will also include a one-hour live from the red carpet show (8:00 p.m. ET/PT tape-delayed).
