“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. It features Golding as the iconic Rosa Parks along with Washington as E.D. Dixon, Loretta Devine as Jo Ann Robinson, Roger Guenveur Smith as Raymond Parks, Shaun Clay as Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Atlanta’s own Keith Arthur Bolden as Ralph David Abernathy.
