H. H. LEONARDS will be at Fogartyville to discuss her book Rosa Parks Beyond the Bus: Life, Lessons, and Leadership – an inspiring book about having faith in yourself to do the hard work to change hearts and minds – and to have the courage to fight for the rights of all others: Black, White, religious, non-religious, men, women, and children.
H.H. Leonards is a wife, mother of three, founder of O Museum in The Mansion, founder of PIRmarketing.com and co-founder of 51 StepsToFreedom.org. Mrs. Rosa Parks and her friends and business associates lived with her, at no cost, as part of The Mansion and O Museum’s heroes-in-residence program. O Museum in The Mansion is now A Historic 20th Century Civil Rights Site, on The African American Heritage Trail. It has been featured in books by lames Patterson and Hunter Davies as well as National Geographic Traveler, Smithsonian Magazine, Wall Street Journal and more.
Leonards has authored seven books and her writings have appeared in Newsweek and Ms.Magazine. She has been a featured speaker at The Rosa Parks Museum (AL), The National Museum of African American Music (TN), The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (OH), The Sonoma Valley Authors Festival (CA), The Southern Kentucky Book Festival, and the Southern Festival of Books (IN) as well as numerous global TV, radio and podcasts.
