Behind the Movement Movie Screening
Join TV One for an evening at the Rosa Parks Museum for the exclusive screening of "Behind the Movement" the Rosa Parks story.
Behind the Movement is a unique and fast-paced retelling of how Rosa Parks’ refusal to give up her seat launched the history-making Montgomery Bus Boycott. The film will reveal the untold story of how a group of everyday people decided this incident was the right time to take a stand for their civil rights and demand equal treatment. Behind the Movement, starring Meta Golding ("The Hunger Games"), Isaiah Washington ("The 100"), Loretta Devine ("Waiting to Exhale"), and Roger Guenveur Smith ("American Gangster"). Rosa’s day as a seamstress at the Montgomery Fair Department Store, in Alabama in 1955, starts as any other, but her journey home was interrupted when the evening bus driver tells the black passengers in the first row of the “Negro Section” to make room for white passengers who were without seats. Though this was common practice, that evening, Mrs. Parks decides not to comply. Knowing her rights and being fed up with the treatment of black citizens, she accepts the consequences of refusing to obey an order and is arrested. By midnight, plans are put in motion to launch a boycott that, ultimately, would last more than a year and give rise to what is known today at the Civil Rights Movement.
