Rosa Parks Memorabilia To Be AuctionedRosa Parks Memorabilia To Be Auctioned, Six years after the death of civil rights icon Rosa Parks, an auction house in New York holds her collection of memorabilia -including the hat he wore in her historic bus journey -, Detroit Free Press reports.  Even the material property, once valued at 10 million and is in limbo, Free Press, writer David Ashenfelter reports. He says the financial situation is summarized in a presentation new Supreme Court of Michigan.

The article should be read in its entirety because the issues are complicated. He faces a lawyer representing the institution against the two lawyers and the judge of probate.

One-side charges “clientelism and corruption,” while another says the court-appointed lawyers were protecting the interests of the mass and increase its value by recognizing how much it is worth remembering.

A presentation argues that the two lawyers persuaded a county probate judge to award them vast collection of memorabilia Parks and licensing rights to her name.

Parks, who died in 2005 at the age of 92 years, had given to the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development.

Arlan Ettinger, president of Guernsey Auction in New York, the newspaper said he wants to sell the entire collection to an institution that can address and use it to educate and inspire future generations.

In 1955, Parks drove the burgeoning civil rights movement by refusing to give up her seat to a white man on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama, prompting a boycott.
