Host Tavis Smiley speaks to actress Angela Bassett, who stars in "The Rosa Parks Story," which airs this Sunday on CBS. Bassett says that making the movie gave her a clearer idea of the great sacrifices made by Rosa Parks and other members of the civil rights movement, and that she hopes the movie will do the same for audiences across the country.
