Our Auntie Rosa free pdf "She was there, encouraging and helping us throughout our lives. To the world, she is Rosa Parks, but to us, she was simply and wonderfully 'Auntie Rosa.'" -From Our Auntie Rosa A warrior in the fight for freedom, justice and equality, Rosa Parks had the vision for a better world. She demonstrated that one person's actions can indeed make a difference. What many don't know is the person behind the persona. "Auntie Rosa," as she was called by the many nieces and nephews she helped raise, extended her love and encouragement to her closest kin. She was a guiding force and inspiration in their lives and, in this remarkable book, they share with readers the great wisdom Auntie Rosa imparted to them. In OUR AUNTIE ROSA, the family of Rosa Parks presents a collection of personal remembrances, reflections and never-before-seen photos and letters that pay tribute to Rosa Parks' incredible strength and determination. Parks' brave act on a bus in Alabama on December 1, 1955, was just one moment in a life lived with great humility and decency. OUR AUNTIE ROSA is a life's instruction manual from one of the most famous figures in American history that will inspire generations to come.
