The Associated Press reports that many of Rosa Parks most prized belongings remain stored in a warehouse in Harlem, New York. Amont the treasured items are clothing, personal correspondence, and Mrs. Parks' numerous awards and recognitions.
The collection of thousands of items was handed over to auctioneers by court order after a long legal battle between Rosa Parks' heirs and friends.
Unfortunately the collection will remain stored indefinitely because it must be sold in its entirety. All of the items are valued between $8-10 million dollars.
