ROSA L. PARKS (1913-2005): 8 1/2 x 11" biography on excellent quality paper hand-autographed by civil rights legend who truly changed America, She is the lady who in the mid 1950s refused to give up her bus seat to a white man and then move to the back of the Montgomery, Alabama bus. Her act helped trigger the non-violent protest movement spearheaded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Mrs. Parks is now immortalized in Statuary Hall in the US Capitol building with a nine-foot tall likeness in bronze. She is the first African American to have a full bodied statue in the hall. A true civil rights pioneer, she was an early activist in the effort to free the Scottsboro Boys, in the 1930s. This is a biography which came directly to me from her -- Mrs. Parks signed this for me and dated it in January 1989. It is an interesting biographical sketch that outlines high points of her life. She signed four copies of the bio for me -- there might be other copies autographed by her but I have never seem them offered for sale. This has been in my personal collection since she gave it to me.Not a preprint or facsimile autograph of any kind.Excellent condition. SHIPPING: Shiping in the USA is $4.
