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

During the 2010 congressional debate about healthcare reform, she wrote the famous “nuns’ letter” supporting the reform bill and got 59 leaders of Catholic Sisters, including LCWR, to sign on. This action was cited by many as critically important in passing the Affordable Care Act. She was thanked by President Obama and invited to the ceremony celebrating its being signed into law.
In 2012, she was also instrumental in organizing the “Nuns on the Bus” tour of nine states to oppose the “Ryan Budget” approved by the House of Representatives. This budget would decimate programs meant to help people in need. “Nuns on the Bus” received an avalanche of attention across the nation from religious communities, elected officials and the media
