In the winter of 1955 in the deep south, Rosa Parks, a single black woman on a public bus, is arrested when she chooses a "whites only" seat. Her action and the reaction of the authorities helps birth the modern civil rights movement in the United States, and makes her an inspiring icon and lodestone to all involved with the struggle for equality, including a young Martin Luther King.

Many of us have learned about the Montgomery bus boycott from our history books but this movie really showed the sacrifices the organizers and participants experienced. Homes were firebombed. People were harassed, arrested and sometimes murdered by the police. Hate groups like the KKK were intimidating citizens for exercising their right to boycott. People often look at the results of a boycott without thinking about the strategy, politics and sacrifices that are made behind the scenes. Great film!!!!
