Most people know Rosa Parks as the courageous civil rights activist whose sacrifices, along with those of many others, made it possible for us to live in a more just society today.
What the majority of her admirers throughout the world don’t know is that she was also a model of excellence in daily life, and was a devoted mother figure to her niece, Sheila McCauley Keys, and Sheila’s twelve siblings.
Our Auntie Rosa: The Family of Rosa Parks Remembers Her Life and Lessons, a new book of memories written by Sheila McCauley Keys with Eddie B. Allen, Jr., is a collection of never-before-seen photos, letters, and family stories that pay tribute to Rosa Parks and show the woman behind the legend. Sheila McCauley Keys will discuss her famous aunt and this new book of family stories and photos.
The event includes a book signing and books will be for sale
