Do I wish there were no houses in disrepair in Detroit? In 1994, when Parks was in her 80s, she moved to a downtown apartment in Riverfront Towers, a gated high-rise next to the Detroit River, for her safety.
According to news accounts, Parks had been hit in the face by an intruder who stole from the Wildemere home.
"Rhea Mc Cauley — and this artist Ryan Mendoza — came up with a stunt to make money on her famous aunt's name. This is a commercial operation." And, he said, the story of the home being saved from demolition is misleading, too.
"The house is not really a symbol of anything," he said. I don't know if it fell into disrepair decades after the Mc Cauleys moved out. Yes." Cohn's version of history is Parks lived in a house at 9336 Wildemere St., which is still standing, and the institute has offices there.
In 2014, Mc Cauley bought the Deacon Street house for 0 from the Detroit Land Bank Authority.
It was dilapidated, and Mc Cauley said she hoped her childhood home could be restored.
Congress, in awarding Parks the Congressional Gold Medal for her contributions to the nation, said she quietly ignited "the most significant social movement in the history of the United States" and called her the "mother of the freedom movement." Still, the part of Parks' story that isn't as well known is after she moved to Detroit. I know people have said I am lying, but you can't have every family member of Auntie Rosa lying at the same time." The family, the owners said, eventually lost the home through bad mortgages.
When she did, Mc Cauley said, her aunt first settled at the home at 2672 South Deacon St., where Parks' brother lived. In addition to the exterior, the home's original parquet floor, the door handles, and stairway, all parts of the home that Parks would have touched, have been preserved and through the exhibit help create a physical connection to her.
Saved from demolition two years ago, the small house made international headlines as it crisscrossed the Atlantic Ocean.
After that, he said, the university has agreed to ship the house to its next destination. Wright Museum of African American History said Tuesday they are in talks to exhibit the house.
