Happy Born Day! Our Favorite Angela Bassett Performances

The Rosa Parks Story

No one does biographical film work like Angela Bassett. Name a person, I’m sure she could bust out an impression right now. But one of her best performances to date took place not too long ago actually, 2002 when she played Rosa Parks in The Rosa Parks Story. What could have easily been a job too nerve-wrecking for other actresses, Bassett displayed defiance like it wasn’t “no thang” as well as despair and anguish. Bassett even won the NAACP Image Award for her performance.
