87th Annual Academy Awards - Show

Common and John Legend shared a proud moment for the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. last night at the 2015 Oscar Awards. Taking home the trophy for Best Original Song, the soulful duo walked up on that stage with class and sophistication as they both drilled home points of about the continued fight against racism.

“We wrote this song for a film that was based on events that were 50 years ago, but we say that Selma is now because the struggle for justice is right now,” Legend told the crowd.”We live in the most incarcerated country in the world. There are more black men under correctional control today than were under slavery in 1850. When people are marching with our song, we want to tell you, ‘We are with you. We see you. We love you. And march on.'”
