This week we talk with Sheila McCauley Keys,Sheila is the author of Our Aunt 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 12 siblings. "Our Auntie Rosa: The Family of Rosa Parks Remembers Her Life and Lessons" by Keys with Allen presents a collection of never-before-seen photos, letters and family stories that pay tribute to 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 13 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
