Women Of The Movement - Joshua Caleb Johnson Get Recurring Role


The Good Lord Bird star Joshua Caleb Johnson is set to recur opposite Adrienne Warren and Cedric Joe in ABC’s limited series Women of the Movement, from creator-writer Marissa Jo Cerar and a producing team that includes Jay-Z, Will Smith and Aaron Kaplan.

Johnson plays Wheeler Parker Jr., Emmett Till’s beloved best friend and cousin who went on vacation with him to Mississippi in 1955, a vacation that would change both of their lives forever.

The six-episode limited series is set in 1955. It centers on Mamie Till-Mobley (Warren), who risks her life to find justice after her son Emmett (Joe) is brutally murdered in the Jim Crow South. Unwilling to let Emmett’s murder disappear from the headlines, Mamie chooses to bear her pain on the world stage, emerging as an activist for justice and igniting the Civil Rights movement as we know it today.
