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.
