ROSA PARKS Signed Book Inscribed "To Mark Roth / Rosa Parks / 5-10-95" on half title page in black ink. Fine Condition. Autograph obtained in person. #001479Born Rosa Louise McCauley on February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama, Parks was the first child of James and Leona Edwards McCauley; her brother Sylvester was born in 1915. The family later moved to Pine Level, Alabama, where Rosa grew up attending rural schools. When Rosa completed her education at Pine Level at age 11, her mother enrolled her in Montgomery Industrial School for Girls. From there Rosa went on the Alabama State Teacher’s College High School, although her grandmother’s illness and subsequent death prevented her from graduating with the rest of her class. Rosa married Raymond Parks in 1932. Raymond supported Rosa’s desire to complete her formal education, and she went on to receive her high school diploma in 1934. The couple worked together in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) programs. Rosa became a secretary and later a youth leader of the local branch of the NAACP; she was preparing for a major youth conference at the time of her arrest. The incident in Montgomery transformed Rosa Parks into a national figure and a major role model as well. She went on to work for U.S. Rep. John Conyers of Michigan. After Raymond’s death, she co-founded the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development. She also co-authored four books—”Rosa Parks: My Story” (with Jim Haskins), “Quiet Strength” (with Gregory J. Reed), “Dear Mrs. Parks: A Dialogue with Today’s Youth” (with Gregory J. Reed), and “I Am Rosa Parks” (with Jim Haskins). Hundreds of American institutions paid tribute to this remarkable woman during her lifetime: Mrs. Parks received a number of honorary doctoral degrees, countless plaques, awards and citations, and keys to several cities. Among her honors were the NAACP’s Springarn Medal, the UAW’s Social Justice Award, the Martin Luther King Jr. Non-Violent Peace Prize, the Roger Joseph Prize from Hebrew Union College, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
