Movie Description

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Rosa McCauley (Academy Award nominee Angel Bassett - "What's Love Got To Do With It", "Waiting To Exhale", "Music Of The Heart") was raised in the Deep South in the days of Jim Crow, when separate but equal was the law and separate, not equal was the reality. But even at an early age, she refused to believe that she was inferior to anyone. Grown to womanhood, Rosa marries a handsome barber named Raymond Parks (Peter Francis James - TV's "The Guiding Light", "Love Song", "Double Platinum"). Parks, smitten with his new bride, intends to make her life as happy as possible. Yet in spite of his efforts, Rosa is forced to cope with many degrading and humiliating situations, particularly a failed attempt at registering to vote. Rosa learns of the NAACP and goes to work as its secretary. On the Organization's behalf, she raises questions on the position of Black people in society and teaches students to stand up for their beliefs. Years later, in 1955, Rosa Parks creates the spark that ignites the modern Civil Rights Movement. After a long day's work, she takes the only available seat in the first row of the colored section on a bus. When the driver demands that the Black passengers clear the way for a White woman, Rosa refuses to comply. The resulting uproar in the South throws Rosa and her family into the Ku Klux Klan's ring of hatred, but also into the NAACP's limelight. This compelling true story demonstrates the power a single act of defiance can have over an ancient tradition of injustice.
