But, given the incredibly inaccurate and misleading attacks on my father, Woody Allen, I feel that I can no longer stay silent as he continues to be condemned for a crime he did not commit.
By Kira Albin, interview conducted in Photos courtesy of Monica Morgan Photography and ZondervanPublishingHouse When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man forty years ago on December 1,she was tired and weary from a long day of work.
At least that's how the event has been retold countless times and recorded in our history books. But, there's a misconception here that does not do justice to the woman whose act of courage began turning the wheels of the civil rights movement on that fateful day.
Rosa Parks was physically tired, but no more than you or I after a long day's work. In fact, under other circumstances, she would have probably given up her seat willingly to a child or elderly person. But this time Parks was tired of the treatment she and other African Americans received every day of their lives, what with the racism, segregation, and Jim Crow laws of the time.
I knew there was a possibility of being mistreated, but an opportunity was being given to me to do what I had asked of others. But Parks' personal history has been lost in the retelling. Prior to her arrest, Mrs. Parks had a firm and quiet strength to change things that were unjust.
She had run-ins with bus drivers and was evicted from buses. Parks recalls the humiliation: They'd probably shut the door, drive off, and leave you standing there.
Her day is filled with reading mail,-"from students, politicians, and just regular people"-preparing meals, going to church, and visiting people in hospitals. She is still active in fighting racial injustices, now standing up for what she believes in and sharing her message with others.
She and other members of the Rosa and Raymond Parks Institute for Self-Development have a special program called Pathways to Freedom, for young people age Children in the program travel across the country tracing the Underground Railroad, visiting the scenes of critical events in the civil rights movement and learning aspects of America's history.
Parks is a role model that these students look up to, and they feel very honored and privileged to be in her company. And she's very gracious to accompany the students to these activities. But Parks thinks bigger and broader.
But she is firm in her belief that enough people will have the courage and dedication to make this country better than it is. About Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Black Muslims, she says, "Well, I don't know him personally, but I think it was great that he spearheaded the million man march.
She is appreciative and honored by them but exhibits little emotion over whom she has met or what she has done. Her response to being called "the Mother of the Civil Rights Movement" is modest. In Quiet Strength, however, Parks is careful to explain that she did not change things alone.
I would like [people] to know I was not the only person involved. I was just one of many who fought for freedom. Of the event, she writes, "I pray for this young man and the conditions in our country that have made him this way.
Despite the violence and crime in our society, we should not let fear overwhelm us. We must remain strong.

I have long called myself a social conservative. I think it is very important to have standards for behaviour (etiquette) and defined roles.
