Past Sins (Witnessing “Rosa”)

Past Sins (Witnessing “Rosa”)

Often Doctor Who travels to the past to showcase historical events, but it rarely shows what life in those eras was like for the less privileged. Rosa is a jarring exception to the rule, with its lens pointed directly at the racist past of the American South. While there is an antagonist from the future present, the real evil force here is state-sanctioned segregation. And the hero who must confront it isn’t the title character we tune in to see from week to week, but Rosa Parks, the black woman who changed history by refusing to give up her seat on a bus. The drama that results is undeniable, but does that make it a classic?
