Rosa & Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development

The Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development is the ONLY organization created by Rosa Parks to continue her legacy.

The Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self Development was co-founded in February 1987 by Mrs. Rosa Parks and Ms. Elaine Eason Steele, in honor of Raymond Parks (1903 - 1977). It is the living legacy of two individuals who committed their lives to civil and human rights.

Mrs. Parks and Ms. Eason visited the Mesa College campus during three visits to San Diego in the early 1990s.
