Movie: The Rosa Parks Story
The incident that propelled the American Civil Rights struggle into the limelight was brought about by a woman who refused to give up her seat to a white woman after a hard day at work. Rosa Parks unwittingly became a national focus for a growing movement, and she bravely faced down an angry city, a racist population and a set of unjust laws to bring about justice. Angela Bassett plays the title role in this meticulously detailed biography of pioneering civil rights activist Rosa McCauley Parks.
