In December of 1955 Rosa Parks made history when she refused to give up her seat on a bus to a white person. Her act of defiance was the catalyst for the Montgomery Bus Boycott which was the spark that ignited the modern-day Civil Rights Movement. This program captures the feeling for the times Rosa Parks lived in, from the days of Jim Crow laws which allowed for segregation in schools, on buses and trains, to her involvement as an officer of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Archival footage and historical reenactments make the story of Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights Movement come alive for students.
