Check out our red carpet interviews with Keith Arthur Bolden, Marquita Goings, Bill Southworth and more at the premiere of TV One’s original film Behind The Movement which premiered on Sunday, February 11 (check local listings for rebroadcast times)
 

Set during the tumultuous Civil Rights era, Behind The Movement offers a closer look at how Rosa Parks’ refusal to give up her seat on a bus to a white passenger launched the history-making Montgomery Bus Boycott. This original made for television movie honors the contributions of many unsung heroes of this watershed moment in the Civil Rights struggle, recounting the inner workings and behind the scenes preparation that took place during three intense days between the fateful evening when Parks refused to give up her seat, to the launch of this significant protest.

While Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a prominent leader of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, there was a chorus of lesser known heroes, including Rosa Parks and E.D. Nixon, who galvanized the most successful boycott of its time. 

 

KEY CAST MEMBERS: 
  • Meta Golding as Rosa Parks (The Hunger Games) 
  • Isaiah Washington as Edgar “E.D. Nixon” (The 100) 
  • Loretta Devine as Jo Ann Robinson (Waiting to Exhale) 
  • Roger Guenveur Smith as Raymond Parks (American Gangster) 
  • Shaun Clay as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story)
