Today's UPFRONT is another exciting one! We continue our celebration of Black History Month with interviews from the cast of TV One’s original movie Behind the Movement. Isaiah Washington, Loretta Devine and Roger G. Smith open up about their characters that helped shape the iconic Civil Rights Movement. The film airs tomorrow night at 7 p.m. EST. 

UPFRONT also catches up with the cast of Horizon Theatre Company's The Ballad of Klook and Vinette. Brittany Inge and Amari Cheatom discuss their sexy new musical production that has everyone talking. 

TV One has released its first teaser trailer for the upcoming original movie, “Behind the Movement.” The film debuts this February as part of the network’s Black History Month programming.

 

“Behind the Movement” is a retelling of how Rosa Parks‘ refusal to give up her seat launched the history-making Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955-56. The film will reveal the untold story of how a group of everyday people decided this incident was the right time to take a stand for their civil rights and demand equal treatment.
