Haitian-American actress Meta Golding is playing one of the most famous women in American civil rights history, starring as Rosa Parks in the movie “Behind The Movement.”
“It was quite intimidating, but such an honor to just even attempt to step into her shoes,” Golding told NBCBLK. “It’s a departure from her other roles, which include “C.S.I. Crime Scene Investigation” and “Criminal Minds” and a bloodthirsty evil doer in the big screen “Hunger Games” blockbusters.
The Alabama-born seamstress, who sparked off the civil rights movement — after refusing to give up her seat on a bus in 1955, is the centerpiece of “Behind The Movement,” which offers viewers a closer look at how the Montgomery Bus Boycott was planned in just three days and ultimately led to the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.
