Common and John Legend won the Oscar for Best Original Song. The song in question, "Glory," was featured in the film "Selma."

Legend and Common gave a memorable acceptance speech about the civil rights movement and how we are still fighting for justice in America today.

Their performance of "Glory" brought the house down just minutes before they won the award.

But, there is still work to be done in America, and their speech really drove that point home.
