Audience Reviews for The Rosa Parks Story

I adore Angela Bassett and I think she did such a great job. This movie tells Parks' history from childhood all the way up to the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The movie was laced with real footage from the civil rights movement. It was a nice touch. There were many scenes that were simple yet packed a punch.
