“Let me have them front seats, you hear me? Ya’ll need to make it light on yourselves and get on up and give me them seats.” “Why aren’t you standing up?” “I don’t think I should have to.” Rosa Parks said no and launched a movement. ‘Behind the Movement’ is a unique and fast-paced retelling of how Rosa Parks’ refusal to give up her seat launched the history-making Montgomery Bus Boycott.
“Excuse me, are you gonna move?” “No, no I’m not.” “If you don’t move I’m gonna call the police and they’ll arrest you, and you know I’ll do it.” “You may do that then.” “Alright.”
“I have a disruptive passenger on one of my buses.” “Alright, who’s making trouble here?” “Why haven’t you stand up when the driver spoke to you?” “I don’t believe I should have to.” “And why is that?” “I’m not sitting in the white section.”
“Get on up out this bus now you here?” “Don’t make this tough on yourself, come on.” “Why do you push us around?” “The law is the law and you’re under arrest.” The film will reveal the untold story of how a group of everyday people decided this incident was the right time to take a stand for their civil rights and demand equal treatment.
