They needed a common cause... Her heroic stand gave them one.

Rosa McCauley (Academy Award nominee Angela Bassett- What's Love Got to do With It, Waiting to Exhale, Music of the Heart) was raised in the Deep South at a time when it seemed that only white people were created equal. 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 f-rced 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 seating the first row of the "colored" section on a bus. When the driver demands that the Black passengers clear the row 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 of a single act of defiance can have over an ancient tradition of injustice.
