Dear Stefan2, I restored this to the article. An IP removed it today, perhaps accidentally. Thank you for the incredibly quick catch. -SusanLesch (talk) 04:19, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I restored it again just now. It's within fair use guidelines as far as I know. Thank you. -SusanLesch (talk) 04:23, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

IdeaLab proposal[edit]

There is a proposal at the IdeaLab that may interest you. Lightbreather (talk) 20:33, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Test Kaffeeklatsch area for women-only[edit]

Since WikiProject Women as proposed at the IdeaLab may take some time to realize, and based on a discussion on the proposal's talk page, I have started a test Kaffeeklatsch area for women only (cisgender or trans-woman, regardless of sexual orientation).

It is a place where women can go and be sure they'll be able to participate in discussions without being dominated by men's advice, criticism, and explanations. If interested, your participation would be most welcome. Lightbreather (talk) 23:17, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

John Lewis[edit]

Thank you for pointing out the LA Times op-ed piece. I've added a block quote to the controversy section of [[Selma (film)|Selma}. Perhaps you can and additional material, or help set up the quote better. I'd felt badly about the tide of what I considered irrelevant (from mainly self-serving Johnson COIs) criticism, but was hoping for something the quality and gravitas of Lewis' piece. (Surely the passage of 49 years in public service ought to give a (or the) primary source the currency of secondary. — Neonorange (talk) 23:53, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

You're welcome but I must say we read his letter much differently. (It takes all kinds. :) I would prefer to keep this discussion on the article talk page. Thank you. -SusanLesch (talk) 04:50, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Selma[edit]

The issue of the controversy was not about what was omitted, but what some historians claim was a deliberate distortion of President Johnson's attitude and role. Few would quibble with the right of DuVernay to not want to make another "white-savior" film and instead put an emphasis on the perspective of her primary subject matter, or her right to leave out mention of many prominent individuals across the social and racial spectrum who participated in the Selma marches or otherwise supported King. What Updegrove, Califano and other historians take issue with is how Johnson, who spearheaded the drive to pass the Civil Rights legislation and who proactively engaged and supported King, is portrayed as either a reluctant or obstructionist actor or self-interested opportunist. So your inclusion of Lewis' reference to the Lincoln film doesn't fit here.--Civlaction (talk) 06:53, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi, Civlaction. The discussion belongs on the article talk page, not here please. I see you have already posted there. Thank you. -SusanLesch (talk) 15:14, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
