Post-screening dialogue with director and Rosa Parks' cousin, Dr. Angela Sadler Williamson.

"Humanizes a civil rights icon and brings her words and her deeds into a current time in history when institutionalized and individualized racism, neither of which has ever actually gone away, has instead seemingly been given new life in ways that are jarring and frightening." - Richard Propes, the Independent Critic

It has been 63 years since the world heard first of Rosa Parks. Far from being forgotten, the woman whose name is synonymous with human rights seems to be making her presence felt everywhere. Described as an "amazing journey through the life of one of America's most beloved heroines," My Life With Rosie documents what Rose accomplished after she left Alabama and presents the important story behind Rosa's "lifetime of public service" in the city of Detroit and her impact as a rebel against discrimination.

Angela Sadler Williamson, Ph.D., is an independent filmmaker, speaker, and adjunct instructor in the Communication Studies Department at Concordia University Irvine. She is the 2019 recipient of the Belle Babb Mansfield Award and has been featured in Women Who Rock with Success and Black Girls Allowed magazines.
