'Selma' Cast Wears 'I Can't Breathe' Shirts at NYC Premiere

David Oyelowo stands front and center while standing alongside the cast of his movie Selma at the New York Public Library on Sunday evening (December 14) in New York City.

The stars wore “I Can’t Breathe” shirts to protest the death of Eric Garner, who was strangled by a NYPD cop earlier this year.

Also in attendance at the premiere were stars Oprah Winfrey, Carmen Ejogo, Tessa Thompson, Alessandro Nivola, Cuba Gooding Jr, Dylan Baker, Niecy Nash, Common, and Oprah‘s friend Gayle King, as well as director Ava DuVernay.

“Thankfully, we’re seeing a lot of the same good sides of protests happening with these protests — i.e. that they are nonviolent, and that we are now seeing black and white and everything in between coming together against injustice,” David told THR about what today’s protestors can learn from the movie.

FYI: Carmen is wearing a Vivienne Westwood dress. Tessa is wearing a Rodarte dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Sha Nazarian of DiamondDNY jewelry.
