The book, The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks

ABHM Book Club: The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks (Adapted for Young People)

America’s Black Holocaust Museum’s founder, Dr. James Cameron, was an avid reader and inspiring writer and educator. To this day, he is the only known survivor of a lynching to write and publish a memoir about such an experience. In his honor, we created this book club in November of 2020 to bring together a community of all backgrounds to learn about and discuss our collective past, modern manifestations of racism, and how we create racial repair, reconciliation, and healing for a better the future.

This month’s book selection is “The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks (Adapted for Young People)” by Jeanne Theoharis, which we will discuss via Zoom. This book club will be led by ABHM’s Jr Griots (docents)!

While the book is titled for young readers, this book is suitable for all ages, including adults. We especially encourage young people to join us for a fruitful, intergenerational discussion. This event is open to the public so please feel free to share this invitation with those in your network and friend group.

The ABHM Book Club is free and open to all who are able to attend, although the books will need to be purchased by each participant. They are available locally at Boswell Books, Niche Book Bar, Rooted MKE, or the Milwaukee Public Library. If you are having trouble finding a copy, please email


The event is finished.
