Ashay says, "Rosa Parks was chosen to play the role she played in the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Her defiance of southern segregation laws made her a symbol of the the Civil Rights Movement. She was not the first to resist the law, but she was the first to get national attention and was supported by the NAACP and Martin Luther King Jr. and others.
