Director: Julie Dash
Cast: Angela Bassett, Peter Francis James, Cicely Tyson, Dexter King, Nick LaTour, Tonea Stewart, Von Coulter, Charde Manzy, Stephanie Astalos-Jones, Sonny Shroyer
Rosa Parks (excellently played by Angela Bassett) is best known for her refusal to obey bus segregation rules, but she was a pioneer in the civil rights movement. This is her story, diluted somewhat, but still powerful as it traces her life from her school days, to membership in the NAACP, and resulting major Civil Rights activities.
