Cast of the movie including lead actor David Oyelowo whose performance as Martin Luther King Jr. has garnered raving reviews, was joined by Director Ava DuVernay, Colman Domingo and Tom Wilkinson.
The Premiere was packed with celebrities and people of note in the UK black community including Tottenham MP David Lammy, Doreen Lawrence and Sir Paul Stephenson. Former Sugababe Jade Ewen, singer Nicole Scherzinger, Bipolar Sunshine and Ella Eyre.
David Oyelowo looked dapper in a sharp suit paired with black gold spiked shoes. The actor looked a far cry from his burly look which he had to gain weight for. He was accompanied on the red carpet by his wife Jesiica Oyelowo who looked stunning in a black floor lenght gown.
