Women’s History Month Film Series: The Rosa Parks Story
“This scripted narrative follows Rosa Parks’ life from the time she was a private-school student, to her rise to infamy. Part of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Parks fought against discrimination and segregation. But, it was her refusal to relinquish her seat on a bus and subsequent arrest, sparking the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which thrust her into the spotlight. This American-made film directed by Julie Dash features Angela Basset as Rosa Parks and Cicely Tyson as her mother. (94 minutes)” (description from website) https://fod.infobase.com/p_ViewVideo.aspx?xtid=110309&tScript=0
