The Hidden Life of Rosa Parks, Animated and Illustrated

We all know the story of Rosa Parks’ fateful bus journey—but there is much more to her story at large.

“Today we find ourselves within challenging societal circumstances similar to the ones experienced by Rosa Parks, someone whose work came at an enormous risk—and a personal price,” Eido Creative Director Joash Berkeley writes in an email. “Throughout her life, Rosa Parks repeatedly challenged racial violence and the prejudiced systems protecting its perpetrators. We animated this film to tell her story.”

The Huntington Beach, CA–based Eido—“a motion graphics studio focused on crafting thoughtful people and work, in that order”—brought the inspiring film to life for TED-Ed.
