Justin Jordan serves as a graphics production assistant in the new Oprah Winfrey film, "Selma," which opened nationwide Friday. Jordan's job involved making sure the sets in the movie depicting the South were authentic.

The movie pays homage to the 1965 March in which a group of demonstrators faced violence in attempting a 50-mile trek from Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery to demand the right to vote for blacks.
