Good episode? Give it some love!
For KGNU Claudia Cragg speaks here with Sheila McCauley Keys, author of 'Our Auntie Rosa', who is the niece of Rosa Parks for the 60th Anniversary of her aunt's famous 'bus incident'. McCauley Keys shares the family's remembrances of the woman who was not only the mother of the civil rights movement, but a nurturing mother figure to them as well. Her brave act on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, on December 1, 1955, was just one moment in a life lived with great humility and decency.After the deaths of Rosa Parks's husband and brother, her nieces and nephews became her only family and the closest that she would ever experience to having biological sons and daughters. In this book, they share with readers what she shared with them about her experiences growing up in a racist South, her deep dedication to truth and justice, and the personal values she held closest to her heart.
