Selma’s latest promotional move has its chief stars gracing the cover of Ebony Magazine’s February 2015 issue, and according to its title (The Oprah Effect: Bringing Selma to Life), the cover story will likely address Oprah’s influence in making certain projects come to life.

The cover features Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo and Carmen Ejogo.

Selma chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernay’s Selma tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.
