Through archival footage, new interviews, and her own writings, THE REBELLIOUS LIFE OF ROSA PARKS is a long overdue feature documentary look at the civil rights icon. Many know of her work during the Montgomery bus boycott, but here we learn of her lifelong fight against segregation in both the Jim Crow South and more progressive North. Adapted from the best-selling, award-winning biography of the same name, the film demonstrates just how radical and extensive Parks' efforts were.
