Our Auntie Rosa

About OUR AUNTIE ROSA: 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 by Sheila McCauley Keys with Eddie B. Allen, Jr. (Tarcher/Penguin; January 2015), presents a collection of never-before-seen photos, letters, and family stories that pay tribute to Rosa Parks and show the woman behind the legend. “Auntie Rosa,” as Sheila and her siblings called her, left the south for Detroit in 1957, where she reconnected with her only sibling, Sylvester McCauley, and his thirteen children. In the years that followed, Parks became a guiding force and inspiration to her nieces and nephews, and in this remarkable book, they share with readers the great wisdom of their Auntie Rosa.


The Museum is open from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from noon to 4:45 p.m. on. Sunday. Admission is $8.00 - Adults; $6.00 - Seniors (60+), Military, and students with IDs; Free - Children (16 and under).  Parking - Free.  The Museum is closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
