Along with a large volunteer effort along Richmond Greenway Monday to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service, middle school and high school students can get free admission to the film Selma at certain Bay Area theaters.

Century Hilltop Theatre at 3200 Klose Way is allowing free admission to the 10:50 a.m. screening for students who bring their IDs.

The #SelmaForStudents campaign is part of a national effort to allow youth to “reflect on the past of civil rights progress and what work remains,” organizers said.

The film goes over the events leading up to King’s 1965 march from Selma to Montgomery and the passage of the Voting Rights Act.
