Rosa Parks' niece talks about the woman beyond the historical icon
Rosa Parks is widely known as a civil rights icon. Many of us can pull up that image of her sitting on a bus gazing out the window, her eyes fixed on something just beyond our sight.
A new book, Our Auntie Rosa: The Family of Rosa Parks Remembers Her Life and Lessons, shares stories that help us understand the woman beyond the historical figure. It was written by her niece, Sheila McCauley Keys, with Eddie B. Allen, Jr.
Sheila McCauley Keys will give a talk about the book and her Auntie Rosa at the Ann Arbor District Library on Tuesday, February 24 at 7:00 p.m.
