On Rosa Parks
Because the telling of the American story has focused on, and been primarily told from an Eurocentric/white view, the African descent part of the story is usually portrayed with a one dimensional view of the people involved. One dimensional and on a pedestal leaves little room for us to relate to the humanity of the individual. Rosa Parks becomes, in this opinion piece, the human being she was and so much more the shero we are called to admire. Read "The Real Rosa Parks Story is Better Than the Fairy Tale," featured in the New York Times.
