The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks

Peacock has released the official trailer for the forthcoming documentary film, The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks

About The Film:

The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks, which is based on the bestselling biography by Jeanne Theoharis and executive produced by award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien, expands the record on Rosa Parks’ overlooked accomplishments and the importance of her drive and fight to overcome racial injustices and rampant inequalities. 

In short, what we are taught in school about Rosa Parks is a mere fraction of the full story about who she truly was.

Directors Yoruba Richen and Johanna Hamilton expertly weave together interviews from academics and activists such as Bryan Stevenson, Patrisse Cullors and Ericka Huggins, along with personal stories from her family, and remarkable footage of Mrs. Parks herself, to illuminate her decades-worth of extensive organizing, strategizing, and activism in the pursuit of Black liberation. 

Lisa Gay Hamilton lends her talent in the documentary as the voice of Mrs. Rosa Parks.

Premiere Date: 

October 19, 2022, on Peacock
